Russia’s Federal Security Service has detained several militants of the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia), who plotted terror attacks in the Moscow Region.
According to a video posted by the FSB Public Relations Center, five people were held and one of them pleaded guilty. “Do you acknowledge your guilt?” an FSB officer asked him. “Yes,” the detained man said.
The suspects were apprehended in residential buildings during an operation carried out jointly with security forces. One of them admitted that a package he was carrying contained a bomb.
