There may be a broad terrorist network working in Russia
The almost simultaneous terrorist attacks in Moscow and the school hostage crisis in North Ossetia shows that there may be a broad terrorist network working in Russia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta writes. The possibility of terrorists exploiting an extremist religious network in Russia was first discussed in the mid-1990s. According to the newspaper's source in the security services, after 15 terrorist organizations in the country were banned, their supporters went underground. At the same time, specialists do not have any information that terrorist training camps are based in some regions of Russia, excluding Chechnya. It has often been said that Russian terrorism originates from the Islamic world. Alexander Ignatenko, president of the Region and Politics Institute, says that in Russia al-Qaeda ranks include members from Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt and other Arabs countries, as well as Chechens, Ingushes and Russians who have adopted wahhabism. On returning home al-Qaeda's foreign members are called "Chechens." Iosif Linder, president of the International Counter-Terrorist Training Organization, believes that a counter-terrorist should be well ahead of the enemy rather than just one or two steps.
