In Russia, a young person apparently tried to set fire to a police station. He also attacked an officer. As a result, the 16-year-old was shot. The researchers assume a terrorist background.
According to investigators, Russian police shot and killed a 16-year-old who tried to set fire to a police station and stabbed a police officer. The incident took place in the predominantly Muslim region of Tatarstan. The commission of inquiry responsible for serious crimes in Russia said on Friday that it suspected a terrorist background.
The exact motives of the teenager who reportedly used a Molotov cocktail for his attack are still unclear. He stabbed an officer at least three times during an arrest attempt. A colleague fired warning shots first before being forced to open fire, the researchers said.
