    The Russian Federal Security Service has reported the detention of five Daesh members in the city of Yaroslavl on May 3-4. As the law enforcement agency specified, they were plotting terrorist acts in several Russian cities.

    "The Russian Federal Security Service detained five members of the Daesh terrorist cell, who had been plotting terrorist acts on the territory of a number of Russian regions," the FSB's public relations center said.

    The FSB went on to say that the communications between terrorists were maintained via the Telegram messenger, including from abroad.

    "During the searches, we confiscated an arsenal of improvised explosive devices, explosives, firearms and ammunition from the detainees," the FSB stated.
