MOSCOW, April 27 (UPI) -- Some 140 suspected Islamic extremists have been arrested by Russian authorities in a raid on a place of worship in southern Moscow, officials say.

Members of Russia's Federal Security Service and police conducted the raid.

Suspected radicals, some of them from the North Caucasus region, have reportedly visited the site in the past.
