Nine members of ISIS-affiliated armed group sentenced in North Caucasus

The North Caucasian district military court in southern Russia has sentenced nine members of an illegal armed group operating in Ingushetia to prison terms of between 5 to 19 years, the Federal Security Service (FSB) said on Wednesday.

The group positioned itself as a structural part of Vilayat Galgaycho and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), according to the statement. It added that the militants had prepared a series of terrorist acts in Russia, and were involved in attacks against servicemen and attempts on the lives of law enforcement officers.

A large number of firearms, ammunition and explosive devices were seized from the illegal armed group.
