This is the moment the suspected organiser of the St Petersburg Metro bombing was detained by Russia s Federal Security Service. Azimov Abror Akhralovich, believed to have been involved in the attack on April 3, was stopped in Odintsovo, near Moscow. Akhralovich, who appears to be from Central Asia, is thought to have trained Akbardzhon Jalilov, who left the explosive device in the train and was also killed in the explosion, rt.com reports.
He is being held at a Russian Investigative Committee facility for investigation and his exact role is under scrutiny.

Two former colleagues of Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, say he developed an interest in Islam and soon after travelled to Turkey in 2015. Not much is known about the terror suspect’s movements between then and the start of this year, as friends say he seemed to have ‘disappeared’.
