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