A group of radical Islamists running a cover-up timber business and suspected of financing the operations of Islamic State extremists in Syria have been detained in Russia’s city of Vologda, north of Moscow.
The regional branch of the Federal Security Service (FSB) in Vologda told TASS news agency that the suspects have been “pretending to be involved in the timber selling business,” while transferring the money they earned to terrorist groups in Syria, a source in law enforcement told TASS.

A special operation at the suspects’ residence resulted in the retrieval of a suicide belt containing 1.2 kilograms of RDX (a hexogen-type explosive), a submachine gun, three grenades, ammo, and another homemade explosive device.
