    RATS SCO possesses data on 2,500 suicide bombers and 69 terrorist organizations, the first deputy director of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said Tuesday.

    ALMATY (Sputnik) – The Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (RATS SCO) possesses data on 2,500 suicide bombers and 69 terrorist organizations, the first deputy director of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said Tuesday.

    Sergei Smirnov spoke at the 29th RATS SCO session in southern Kazakhstan.

    "Today we have a database of 2,500 suicide bombers and 69 organizations. We have initiated the idea of compiling a database and will decide on the formal establishment of the databank at the next [RATS] session," Smirnov said.

    He noted that despite the timely submission and exchange of information with the use of a comprehensive set of security services, the difficulty remains in locating suspects who change official residential registrations.
