Russian authorities launched a large-scale operation against suspected terrorism supporters. During the offensive, in which the Russian FSB (Secret Service) was involved, several hundred suspects were arrested.Â Many wereÂ later released.
271 remainÂ in custody, they are Muslims exclusively and their arrests seem to corroborate the allegations, however.
It was a large-scale nighttime razzia in the center of the Russian capital. Because of a suspected terrorist plot in St. Petersburg nearly 300 Muslims have been arrested. The 271 suspects included Uzbek, Afghan, Egypt, Tajik and Azerbaijani citizen,Â the investigating agency said on Saturday. (More in German from PI)
