FSB prevents terror act in Moscow by militants trained in Afghanistan, Pakistan
Russia’s FSB has foiled a terror attack in Moscow as they managed to kill two and detain one of the militants planning it, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said.
The three men are “Russian citizens, arrived from Afghani-Pakistani region, where they have been trained,” the committee said in a statement.
As FSB forces approached the house in a small town in the Moscow region and demanded the militants to surrender, the men opened fire in response.
“In the exchange of fire two of them were killed and one detained,” the statement reads.
One Special Forces officer has sustained a wound of his leg and was taken to local hospital. There are no casualties or injuries among civilians.
It was not specified where the terror attack was planned to take place. But, a source in one of Russia’s intelligence agencies told RIA Novosti, it was to be in central Moscow.
“The information about the specific location is not being made public in the interests of the investigation,” the source said.
