Kan reported that Russia's Federal Security Service announced it had thwarted a major terrorist attack in central Moscow on Thursday.

According to the announcement, the terrorist, a native of central Asia, had been spying on a synagogue in the capital city, and had acquired bomb-making materials. The suspect was shot while security forces were attempting to arrest him.

On March 7, the FSB announced that they had thwarted an ISIS plot to bomb a Moscow synagogue in the Kaluga province, about 200 kilometers from the capital.

Last month, a group of ISIS terrorists stormed a busy concert hall in Moscow, killing more than 140 individuals in the biggest single terrorist attack on Russian soil since 2004.
