A terrorist act has been prevented in the district centre of Shali, Chechnya, spokesman for the Regional Operative Staff Ilya Shabalkin told RIA Novosti.
"Yesterday, officers of the Federal Security Service department and the Chechen Interior Ministry discovered an explosive device in the attic of school number 5 in Lenin Street in Shali," he said.
"The bomb contained 2 kg of TNT and was ready to explode," Shabalkin noted.
"According to policemen, terrorists intended to explode the bomb during classes to kill many schoolchildren," he added.
"A terrorist who came to confess his guilt to the Chechen law enforcement bodies provided the information on the bomb laid in the school," Shabalkin said.
In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
