Knife stab

A knife attacker stabbed eight people on the street in Russia’s far northern city of Surgut before being shot by police, investigators said Saturday.

The attacker “carried out attacks on passers-by, causing stab wounds to eight,” Russia’s Investigative Committee, which probes major crimes said, adding that armed police then “liquidated” the attacker.
