Russian security services have raided dozens of locations across the country linked to the Church of Scientology as part of a long running battle between authorities and the US-based organisation.

The Federal Security Service (FSB) said officers 'conducted simultaneous searches' at 14 addresses in Moscow and St Petersburg as part of a probe into alleged money laundering and illegal businesses dealings by the Church of Scientology.

Russia's justice ministry has long been pushing to prohibit the organisation, which some countries treat as a legitimate faith but others consider to be a cult.
