Patrols came on a radio-operated explosive device of two landmines, two artillery cartridges, two sacks with more than 80 kilograms of explosives, and four electric fuses concealed on the Caucasus highway. Police patrols made the sinister find and defused it as they were surveying the Gekhi village west edge. The terror plot was against federal soldiers, say police informants.
The police are tracking down the mastermind-a gang chieftain, whose name is kept secret not to hamper detection.
Novosti obtained the information from Tamerlane Kazikhanov, chief of PR for the North Caucasian detection board.
