8 injured in Russian Federation knife attack

The knife attacker, identified as a local resident, stabbed eight people on the street in Siberian city of Surgut before being shot by the police.

Russia's Investigative Committee which probes major crimes in the nation said, armed police was called at the crime scene and the attacker was "liquidated".

The investigation is ongoing and the security level has been raised, the statement also said.

Gadzhiev's father Lametulakh was reported to be registered with Russian police as an "extremist" and "supporter" of radical Islam.

Regional authorities are assisting the injured, of whom two are in critical conditions, local health authorities said. "But they had been in contact with the main suspect", Laine said. However, Russian authorities say psychiatric information on the assailant is being sought, suggesting they believe the claim by ISIS may be opportunistic.

Surgut has a population of about 350,000 people. One person sustained light injuries and was not hospitalized.

Law enforcement officers arrived at the scene. A criminal case was initiated under the article "attempted murder".

Soon after the stabbings, the "Islamic State" (IS) militia claimed responsibility and described the man as a "soldier" of the jihadist group.

The incident took place in a city some 2,100 kilometres northeast of Moscow in the oil-rich Khanty-Mansi region.
