Knife Attack in Russian City Injures 7

A man armed with a knife has injured seven pedestrians in the Russian city of Surgut. Police killed the assailant as he was resisting arrest and are investigating claims he was mentally ill. Meanwhile, terrorist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. The knife attacks happened at around 11:20am local time. Nobody was killed, but the victims of the violence required medical treatment, the Investigative Committee said. Law enforcement initially reported the number of victims as eight, but corrected the statement later, RT reported. The attacker was shot dead by a police patrol responding to the emergency reported by witnesses. The man resisted an attempt to arrest him even after a warning shot was fired in the air, the report said.
