Moscow: At least 13 people were killed, including 7 children, and 21 reportedly wounded when an unidentified attacker opened fire in a school in the Russian city of Izhevsk on Monday.

“Nine people were killed because of this crime, including two security guards of the educational institution and two teachers, as well as five minors,” Russia’s Investigative Committee said in a statement on Telegram, adding that the attacker “committed suicide”.
