This starting to get real folks.
Russia’s Federal Security Service announced that 140 people have been detained in the Russian capital for suspected membership in extremist Islamist organizations.

More than 30 of those detained are reportedly foreign nationals, the FSB said in a statement.

According to law enforcement, the chapel in southern Moscow, Dar al-arkam, where the suspects were detained was often visited by people who later “converted to radicalism and joined militant groups active in the North Caucasus, as well as participated in preparing and perpetrating terrorist acts in Russia.”

The investigation that resulted in mass arrests was aimed at finding people who have been wanted for extremist activities and terrorism.

Thus, a student of one of Moscow universities Ibragim Pliev also attended the Muslim prayer house. Under the influence of radicals in May of 2011 he joined the militant organization that was acting in the North Caucuses. He was killed resisting arrest during a law enforcement operation in 2011.

In July 2011, four people were detained in Moscow on suspicions of plotting bomb attacks on the subway and police department. At the time, it was revealed that the four, all from the North Caucasus, repeatedly visited Dar al-arkam.

Russia’s North Caucasus is considered to be one of the country's most troubled regions, with frequent reports of terror attacks and anti-terror operations in the area.

The North Caucasus, including the Russian republics of Chechnya and Dagestan, has been in the headlines since authorities in Boston confirmed that the two Tsarvaev brothers, who carried out the Boston Marathon bombing, were ethnic Chechens. The elder brother, Tamerlan, is said to be a follower of radical Islamism. It has since been revealed the Russian authorities repeatedly warned the FBI about the potential threat Tamerlan Tsarnaev posed and “at least once since October 2011.”
