According to the Russian National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC), two of the detained natives of Karachay-Cherkessia were members of the religious extremist grouping, which committed in July 2012 a murder of the employee of the Russia's MIA for the KChR. At detention, a pistol and a submachine gun were confiscated from them. Also, power agents managed to detain two suspected helpers of IAF members.
