8 people stabbed in Russia, ISIS claims responsibility

At least 8 people have been injured in Russia after a knifeman attacked pedestrians in the street

Amaq later also claimed an attack by a knifeman in Russia's far north who wounded seven people on Saturday before being shot dead.

Officials say eight people were injured in the attack Saturday.

"The assailant in the city of Sourgout in Russian Federation is a soldier of the AES", said, in a statement released by his agency propaganda Qama, the islamic State, which has also claimed responsibility Saturday for the double attack which claimed 14 dead and over a hundred wounded on Thursday evening in Spain.

"A man was running along the main street stabbing people", the TASS news agency said.

The knife attack in Surgut comes just a day after an 18-year-old Moroccan asylum seeker deliberately targeted women in a stabbing spree that left two dead in the Finnish city of Turku on Friday.

The Islamic State group had also claimed the responsibility for the deadly attack in Spain.




She said a motive for the attack had not been determined.

Russia, which initially said the theory of terrorism was "not the main one" being considered, has opened a criminal probe into attempted murder and has not reacted officially to the ISIS claim.

A man has been killed after going on a knife rampage in Russian Federation.

Police confirmed four of the victims were in a serious condition.

Today, eight people were stabbed by an armed man in Russian Federation.

Surgut, about 2,100km east of Moscow in the Khanty-Mansiysk area of Siberia, has a population of more than 350,000.
