Isis claims responsibility for first terror attack in Russia

Isis has claimed its first terror attack on Russian soil after two supporters attempted to murder police officers near Moscow.

Both of the men were killed during the assault at a traffic post on a motorway in Balashika on Wednesday, when they were armed with a gun and two axes.

Russia’s Investigative Committee said one of the men was shot dead while attacking the post and the other was killed when he put up “armed resistance”.
