    MOSCOW: Russia’s FSB security service said Sunday it had killed an “emir” of the Islamic State group in a raid in the volatile North Caucasus. The FSB said in a statement that “among the neutralised bandits was the head of the Caucasus region’s branch of the Islamic State Rustam Aselderov, and four of his close associates.” The FSB said that 35-year-old Aselderov was involved in blasts in the southern Russian city of Volgograd which killed 34 in 2013. He was fighting for another Caucasus insurgent group at the time. It also linked him to twin car blasts in Dagestan in 2012 that killed 14 and injured at least 120.The FSB said he also organised a foiled attack that was to take place on Moscow’s Red Square on New Year’s Eve 2010 involving two female suicide bombers.
