A group of radical Islamists has been arrested in Moscow with bombs, hand grenades and guns seized, Russian police say.

They claim the 15 arrested are members of At-Takfir Wal-Hijra, an Islamist group originally founded in Egypt.

Police say the arrests were made during early-morning raids at flats in the east of the Russian capital.

Officials said three homemade bombs, detonators and fuses for making more devices were also found.
