PYATIGORSK, November 2 (RIA Novosti) – Russian authorities have closed a Muslim women’s school in the southern city of Stavropol because some of its students had become “radicals,” the Federal Security Service said Friday.

The country has been on high alert over terrorism concerns in the run-up to the Winter Olympics and after a recent bus bombing in another southern city, Volgograd. That act is believed to have been perpetrated by a 30-year-old Muslim woman.

The Federal Security Service, a successor of the Soviet KGB, said in a statement that pornographic videos of some of the students in the school were discovered during a raid of the premises.

The school was attended by some 30 to 40 women, and many of them were being groomed to marry men in the restive Russian Caucasus, in particular Dagestan, where the school’s headmaster was from, the statement said.
