Russia: Takfir Wal Hijra Islamist extremist cell raided by Moscow police

Moscow police arrested 14 members of Takfir Wal Hijra, an Islamist extremist organisation, during a raid on Wednesday in an eastern district of the Russian capital. The cell had a stash of weapons and explosives, which was seized in the police raid.

Russian Interior Ministry announced that three homemade bombs with detonators and shrapnel elements, one of them made to be fastened with a belt, bomb parts including detonators and fuses, handguns, grenades, cartridges and extremist literature were found during the search of the residences of the organisation members. The cell was exposed and busted thanks to ongoing investigations into crimes not related to terrorism, the Interior Ministry reported.

The Russian Supreme Court pronounced that Takfir Wal Hijra, established in Egypt in the early 1970s, was an extremist organisation and banned its operations in Russia in September 2010.
