Seven children and two adults have been killed in a shooting at a school in the Russian city of Kazan, officials say. Twenty one other people, mostly children, were injured. A 19-year-old suspect was detained. The attack happened in the capital of the republic of Tatarstan, 820km (510 miles) east of Moscow… Russian PM Mikhail Mishustin spoke of “great sorrow” while Tatarstan’s leader Rustam Minnikhanov described the attack as a “major tragedy”. Officials did not comment on the possible motive for the attack although Mr Minnikhanov called the attacker a “terrorist”. The suspect went on social media before the attack, posting that he planned to kill a “huge number” of people before shooting himself. Screenshots of his account, now blocked, show him wearing a black mask with the word “god” written across it in red.
