YEREVAN (Sputnik) — Armenia's National Security Service (NSS) has reported that a US citizen is wanted in Armenia in connection with organizing acts of terror.
"As a result of investigative and manhunt activities carried out by Armenia's National Security Service, it became clear that a US citizen, an Armenian by nationality, R.K., in September 2017 registered a fake profile in the Facebook social network… publishing materials on the establishment of the group 'Fighters in the Name of Justice', its tactics, discipline, security rules and the secrecy of its members," the service said in a statement.
It said the aforementioned Facebook page was used to make direct calls for violence against Armenian law enforcement personnel and other officials, and for creating an atmosphere of intimidation by organizing explosions and arson attacks.

Since the accused is a US citizen and lives there, the Armenian Prosecutor General’s Office transferred the collected data to the appropriate US authorities to prevent him from carrying out his alleged plot, according to the service.
The units of Armenia's National Security Service have joined in trying to identify the suspect’s accomplices in the country.
