Tajik Suspect to Be Extradited Again

At least one suspect linked to a terrorist group seems to keep surfacing in Moscow.

Moscow police have detained a Tajik national wanted on murder charges and said Tuesday that this will be the second time they have extradited him to Tajikistan.

The unidentified 30-year-old suspect has been on an international wanted list since 2004 and is a member of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which is banned in Russia, the United States and other countries as a terrorist organization, Interfax reported, citing the police.

"He earlier was detained by Russian law enforcement and extradited to Tajikistan, but he returned to Moscow using fake documents," the police said in a statement.

No further details were immediately available.
