Russia: Shooting in front of a church in the Republic of Dagestan

Terrorism in Russia:  A gunman opened fire on worshipers in front of an Orthodox church in Kizlyar, north of Dagestan, in the Russian Caucasus region. Five women were killed and the Islamic state claimed responsibility for the attack.

 

The Interior Ministry said the attacker, who also wounded two members of the security forces, had been "liquidated" during an exchange of fire with the police.

 

According to the assistant director of the local branch of the Russian investigation committee, the shooter is a resident of Kizliar and was born in 1995.

"One of the soldiers of Islam, Khalil Dagestani, went to a temple for Christians in the city of Kizlar in Dagestan, where he targeted them with his rifle, killing five of them and wounding four others," he said in a statement.

 

Dagestan, which is bordering the mainly Muslim Chechnya, is one of Russia's poorest and most troubled regions. It has regularly witnessed attacks on the Islamic state, which was declared by Islamic rebels in the Russian Caucasus in June 2015.
