Migrants held after terror in St Petersburg

Russia's Investigative Committee said in a statement that the suspects had mainly targeted fellow nationals from Central Asian states that were formally part of the Soviet Union.

According to the Investigative Committee of Russian Federation on Wednesday, the suspects were accused of recruiting people for terror groups such as the Islamist former al-Qaida branch Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly known as the Nusra Front) and the IS, Efe news reported. "They also tried to involve the recruits in other illicit armed groups, including those acting in other states", the Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement.

The arrests come just a day after a 22-year-old Kyrgyz-born man was identified as the main suspect in Monday's deadly suicide bombing on a St Petersburg subway. Authorities refused to confirm that the couple were Jalilov's parents but the woman, in response to a Russian TV reporter's question, said she did not believe her son was the bomber.

Meanwhile, investigations continue about the alleged metro attacker, his motives and whether he had any links to radical movements. However, suspicions are very likely to fall on the suspect's Islamist background, possibly inspired by IS ideology.

"Unfortunately, there is no sign that the security environment is improving, and tragic events in St. Petersburg are the best evidence of it", Putin said while meeting chiefs of CIS intelligence agencies, as cited by TASS.

"We know that each of our countries, practically every one, is a possible and potential target of terrorist attacks". "Our countries are facing many other challenges, including organized crime and drug trafficking".

"We have a very good [intelligence] community, and we enjoy very good cooperation on addressing major challenges".

In a statement, the investigators said the detainees had come to Russian Federation to work.

Moreover, the identities of all the victims of the St. Petersburg attack have been determined, Petrenko said.
