Seven People Stabbed in Islamic State Terrorist Attack in Russia

Islamic State's last desperate killing spree extends to Russia.

Isis has claimed responsibility for a stabbing attack in Russia that injured eight people, the group's Amaq news agency has said.

A man was shot dead by police after knifing people apparently at random in the Siberian city of Surgut on Saturday morning.

The state-owned RIA Novosti agency said two people were in critical condition in hospital.

"A man was running along the main streets stabbing people", the TASS news agency reported. There were initially fears of a second attacker, but police later said he was acting alone.
