ISIS has claimed responsibility for a gun rampage at an Orthodox church in Russia that left five women dead. Khalil Khalilov screamed ‘Allahu akbar’ as he opened fire with a hunting rifle before he was shot dead by police in Kizlyar.
Chilling footage shows the bearded 22-year-old attacker walking to the church on Sunday and a terrified woman fleeing the scene.
Pictures show the body of Khalilov, who was dressed in military clothes and was carrying a hunting knife with Arabic inscriptions on the black sheath. Next to his corpse lay two of his victims, covered in a white shroud. May their souls rest in peace.
