Recommended Posts

At least one person has sustained gunshot wounds after an armed perpetrator tried to break into a synagogue in central Moscow and threatened to set it on fire, local media reported.

Police confirmed the incident.

"There was a conflict in one of the religious institutions between the guards and a man, who behaved inadequately,” Interior Ministry spokeswoman Irina Volk said

"As a result, the person fired several shots at the guards from a non-lethal pistol. After that he was arrested and delivered to a police station," she added.

The attacker had a gun and a canister of gasoline with him, saying that he was going to burn the Moscow Choral Synagogue, Life.ru reported.
