Examiner: In the aftermath of the Boston, Mass., terrorist bombings on April 15, Russian security forces on Friday nabbed at least 135 Muslim men at one of Moscow’s largest mosques for suspicion of being involved with Islamic radical groups in Russia and Chechnya, according to intelligence analysts with the National Association of Chiefs of Police’s Ad Hoc Committee on Terrorism and Transnational Crime.

NACOP analysts said that a statement from Russia’s Federal Security Agency (FSA) announced the suspects were being detained and that among those detainees in Friday’s security and police action were 30 citizens of unspecified foreign countries.

The FSA and Russian police operations came a week after the two terrorist suspects in the fatal Boston Marathon bombing were discovered to be from Russia’s Chechnya region a predominately Muslim enclave with many citizens who are Islamic extremists or sympathizers, according to the NACOP committee.

There are no reports of criminal charges being filed against the 135 suspects. However, a video of the operation was made available on Friday.

NACOP analysts cited FSA officials as stating the Moscow mosque has been visited by Muslims who have been involved in plotting or perpetrating terrorist attacks in Russia and other locations.

Salafism in Chechnya is viewed as a threat to both Chechen and Russian leaders. The emergence of Salafi institutions is disturbing since Salafists are considered the most radical of the Islamic sects. Now that Vladimir Putin is again the president, Russia is depending on its military and police powers to maintain control of the terrorist threat.
