Russia's interior ministry said on Wednesday that its agents had detained 14 members of Takfir w'al-Hijra in Moscow.

The ministry said members of Takfir w'al-Hijra - a group formed in Egypt in the 1960s and outlawed in Russia in 2010 - had been discovered hiding weapons and explosives in their apartments, but provided few other details.

It said the group had been funding its activities by "conducting general crime".

Takfir w'al-Hijra was quashed in Egypt in the 1970s.
