Xinhua | Updated:2017-08-19 23:49MOSCOW, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) — Russian investigators have identified a knife-wielding man who carried out a stabbing attack that left seven people injured in the Russian city of Surgut on Saturday.
“Investigators have identified the attacker now. According to preliminary information, he was a local resident born in 1994,” Russias Investigative Committee said in its latest statement.
An earlier statement issued by the committee said that the attacker stabbed pedestrians while moving along the citys main streets at about 11:20 a.m. local time (0620 GMT), leaving eight people injured with wounds of varying degrees, while the reportedly updated information said the number of injured in the attack is seven.
All the victims have been hospitalized. According to the committee, the attacker was killed by security forces, who had immediately arrived at the scene.
Investigators and criminologists are currently working at the scene, and a criminal case has been launched, said the previous statement.
Circumstances and motives of the crime are being established. Information on the mans possible mental disorders will be verified, the committee said.
“The theory that the attack was an act of terrorism is not the main one,” the regional department of the Russian Interior Ministry said.
Regional authorities are assisting the injured, of whom two are in critical conditions, local health authorities said.PhotoSick of congested roads, German man swims to workLondons famous Big Ben to fall silent until 2021Death toll in Sierra Leone mudslide rises to 331Police confirm at least 4 suspects dead in Barcelona terror attackHong Kong tourist slightly injured in terrorist attack in BarcelonaUN envoy says real substantive peace talks on Syria scheduled for OctMost Viewed in 24 HoursExclusive2 Chinese tourists held for Nazi salutes in GermanyCan you make a finger knot?Decoding Indias trespassing of China-India boundaryWeekly PhotoThe world in photos: Aug 7 – Aug 13NewsmakerCountdown to Xiamen summit: BRICS seminar on governanceLondons famous Big Ben to fall silent until 2021SpecialNinth BRICS SummmitPresident Xi visits Russia, Germany, attends G20Reporters JournalThe good, bad and ugly on climate change in the USChinese cultural relics still have a long way homeChina-Japan3 pandas born in Japan come homeChina-USIowans expanding footprintChina-EuropeFrances first lady to play special role in panda cubs lifeChina-AfricaNation opens logistical base in AfricaBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
