A teenage terrorist was shot dead by police as he attacked an officer with a knife.
Vitaly Antipov was hit by six bullets after a dozen shots were fired by armed officers in Russia.
He is believed to have shouted ‘infidels’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’ during the incident.
The teenager targeted a police station with two Molotov cocktails, say reports.
He was repelled by police and wounded, and as officers sought to give him first aid, he attacked them with a knife.
The incident was in the village of Kukmor, in the mainly Muslim region of Tatarstan.
He screamed “I am going to kill you all” as he stabbed an officer three times in the hip and arm.
Antipov was ordered to stop and retreat as shots were fired in the air as warnings, but he refused, say reports.
The Russian Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case under the country’s terrorist laws over the attempted murder of law enforcement officers.
Antipov was reported to be from the Altai region in Siberia.
He had a job working in a halal cafe named Barakat.
Its owner Marat Zamaleev had served 14 years for sabotage and the illegal manufacture of weapons.
