Russia upsets terror plot; 2 militants killed

- The Washington Times - Monday, May 20, 2013

Russian counterterrorism agents say they've killed two militants who were planning a terrorist attack in Moscow.

The intelligence officials also said they've detained a third suspect and were questioning him, The Associated Press reported. Meanwhile, one Russian agent was slightly wounded. The National Anti-Terrorist Committee said the mission was carried out in a suburb near Moscow, Orekhovo-Zuevo, AP reported.

AP said details about the operation are still sketchy. Russia didn't report when its operation was carried out, and no other information was forthcoming. Russia's intelligence did say, however, the militants were Russian citizens who were trained in Pakistan, AP reported.

The last terrorist attack to go forth in Russia occurred at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport in early 2011. Then, 37 were killed, AP reported.
