Gunman Kills Two At Cathedral In Russia
A gunman has opened fire in a cathedral, killing a nun and a churchgoer and wounding six other people.
The attack happened in the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on the Russian island of Sakhalin, off the country's east coast.
Most of the injured were shot in the legs with a rifle but their lives are not thought to be in danger, according to a local archbishop.
The 24-year-old gunman - who worked for a security company - was detained after the shooting.
The attack comes days after a teenager killed a teacher and a policeman in the first major school shooting in Russia.
Security is very tight in many areas with the Winter Olympics under way thousands of miles away in Sochi, in the west of Russia.
However, there is nothing to suggest the attack on the island is related to the games.
Archbishop Tikhon, head of the regional Russian Orthodox Church, said a prayer service for the victims would be held in the cathedral later, after the building is cleaned and blessed.
