Russian police foil ‘terror attack’ on Moscow after making arrests in city

Russian police have arrested a group of people they said were planning a terror attack on Moscow, the country’s anti-terrorism committee said.

“After a series of investigations by the security services, a group of individuals was arrested in the west of Moscow suspected of planning a terrorist attack on the capital,” the committee was quoted by local media as saying on Sunday.

Investigators found about 4kg (9lbs) of homemade explosives in the suspects’ apartment, the official TASS news agency reported.

    Of course, at the end of the article the repulsive rag states that “The arrests follow comments by the US defence secretary Ashton Carter that Russia could pay the price for its bombing raids on Syria.”
    So, it’s all Russia’s fault that they’re being terrorized, y’see?

      And the reason for all the terrorists attacks in Thailand, the Philippines and so many other countries not bombing Syria would be explained how I wonder.

    I hope the plotters enjoy Siberia.

      Siberia would be too good for them. Give them the death they wanted to give to others.

        I hear you, Alain, but I actually like the idea of work camps in Siberia for this scum. Keep them just alive enough to feel the pain of excruciating work and frostbite. Make them wish they could die.
