MOSCOW, Nov. 30 (UPI) — Six people have been sentenced to prison for a terrorist plot to bomb Red Square in Moscow, prosecutors said.
The sentences — ranging from 13 to 17 years — were handed down Friday in the Russian republic of Dagestan.
The defendants were convicted of hatching a scheme to bomb crowded Red Square on New Year’s Eve 2012.
