Police have detained the perpetrators of the terrorist act in Pyatigorsk, the Stavropol territory, in southern Russia, a source at the information center of the National Anti-Terror Committee told Itar-Tass on Friday.

"During a pre-trial investigation, the aforesaid persons gave confessionary evidence that they had committed that crime and had taken part in the preparation of a large-scale terrorist act.
