Russia’s security service said on Thursday it had uncovered an alleged bomb-making laboratory in Moscow as officers detained four suspected Islamic State group members plotting “terror attacks” on public transport.

The FSB said those held included citizens of Russia and ex-Soviet Central Asia who were “preparing terror attacks with the use of homemade explosives on Moscow’s transport infrastructure”.

“As a result of searches at the detainees’ places of residence a laboratory for making explosives was discovered and a ready-made explosive device,” the agency said in a statement.

The alleged terror cell was directed by the IS leadership in Syria and the suspects planned to flee there after the planned attacks to fight for the extremist group, it added. ... NM16H.html
