[AlAhram] The FSB described the man as a native of Central Asia and said he was working under instructions from an international terrorist group.
ISIS? Al Qaeda? Hopefully there will be a subsequent report that clarifies his connections.
Russian security services thwarted a terrorist kaboom in Moscow on Thursday and detained a man preparing to detonate a bomb at a government building, the Federal Security Service
... the successor to the KGB...
(FSB) said.

The FSB described the man as a native of Central Asia and said he was working under instructions from an international terrorist group.

Such incidents are rare in the capital, but an FSB employee was killed in central Moscow in December when a man shot up FSB headquarters.

The FSB said it had found components for an improvised bomb among the detainee's belongings, together with instructions for making explosives and correspondence with fellow hard boys.

"The offender planned to travel to a combat zone in the Middle East to participate in the activities of terrorist groups," the FSB said in a statement on its website.

It said investigations were being carried out and that a criminal case had been launched.
