Al-Qaeda prepares terrorist attacks in Russia

Russian special services disclosed monstrous designs of international terrorist network al-Qaeda. The organization intended to conduct a series of terrorist attacks in Russia during the celebration of the Orthodox Easter.

Terrorists planned to explode a building of the Federal Security Bureau in Moscow, a building of an aircraft-making association and a tan-yard in Kazan. They also planned to assassinate a high-ranking FSB official, Boris G.

Russian special services left no chances to the terrorists. Eight al-Qaeda members have made their way to Kazan using fake passports. Three of the terrorists are Russians.

“They originally were given Indian passports, but they later decided to issue Azeri passports for them, because it is always easy for guest-workers to remain inconspicuous,” an official said.

The special services have obtained the verbal descriptions of all the three suspects. The first one of them, Mohammad Yunus bin Mussa is a 35-year-old red-haired well-built male. The second one is Janes Han bin Ali Khan, a 32-year-old, dark-haired male. The third suspect is identified as Sodjat Ali Shakh bin Makbul Ali Shakh, 35, dark hair. The three men are fluent in Russian, Pushtu, Dari, as well as the Arab and the Turkish, Life.ru reports.

“The terrorists planned to use car bombs in their subversive activities. The Russian services have obtained the numbers of those wheeled bombs,” an official said.

In addition to Easter terrorist attacks, the gunmen planned to hold arson attacks of the buildings of the Internal Affairs Ministry, the FSB and the offices of United Russia Party.
