Moscow: Russia's counter-terrorism agency said special forces have today arrested a man it says planned a terrorist attack on Moscow that the agency foiled last month.

The National Anti-Terrorism Committee said in a statement that troops from the Federal Security Service, or FSB, arrested Yulai Davletbayev in suburban Moscow this morning.

Russian TV showed images of special forces arresting a man identified as Davletbayev. It was not clear when or where the operation took place.

Two suspected militants were killed and a third arrested in an FSB operation in May. The men were Russian citizens trained in terrorist camps on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, the committee said.

Russian special forces regularly announce that they have thwarted terrorist attacks, most often in the Caucasus region of southern Russia.
