Anti-Extremism Official Says Islamic State Cells Busted in Nearly 20 Russian Regions.

Russia has uncovered Islamic State terrorist group cells in nearly 20 of the country’s regions stretching as far as Siberia, a top anti-extremism official at the Interior Ministry has said.

Extremism accounts for 1% of all crimes in Russia, Oleg Ilyinykh wrote in a piece for the ministry’s “Russian Police” magazine published Tuesday. “But even a single crime in such a sensitive area as interethnic and interfaith relations can… complicate the crime situation in the entire region,” Ilyinykh warned.
