Russia: Islamic group offers reward for info on attack organizers
Russia's Islamic Cultural Center will pay 1 million rubles ($30,000) for any information on the organizers of the Moscow subway bomb attack, the organization's president said on Tuesday.
Two deadly suicide bombings hit the Moscow metro on Monday, killing at least 39 people and injuring more than 70. The blasts ripped through the rush-hour Lubyanka and Park Kultury stations with an interval of about 40 minutes.
Abdul Vakhed Niyazov said the offer had the backing of the Russian Council of Muftis.
"We all agreed that we should contribute to catching the criminals and their associates by any means available to us," he said, adding that any pertinent information would be handed over to law enforcement agencies.
"This initiative is designed to identify the organizers and masterminds of the act hateful to God and aimed against civilians," Niyazov said.
