FSB agents killed former Guantanamo detainee

The Federal Security Service said that a man formerly held in the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay was shot dead by agents in a restive Russian republic.

Ruslan Odzhiev was killed amid gunfire that erupted when agents tried to arrest him and another man in Kabardino-Balkariya, a North Caucasus region plagued by violence linked both to crime and to religious tensions, according to the security service, known by its Russian acronym FSB.

A brief FSB statement said Odzhiev had been held at Guantanamo Bay and was believed to have been a supporter of the Taliban. Odzhiev was one of seven Russians released from the detention facility in 2004; his whereabouts recently had been unknown.

The FSB did not specify why agents were trying to detain him, but said he was a suspect in the 1999 bombings of apartment buildings in Moscow and Volgodonsk and that he took part in a 2005 insurgent attack on police facilities in Nalchik, the capital of Kabardino-Balkariya.
