Shul Stabbings

A man described as a skinhead stabbed at least nine men Wednesday at a Chabad synagogue in Moscow. The incident took place just before the evening service, when the Bolshaya Bronnaya Synagogue in downtown Moscow was full of worshippers. The man, identified by police as Alexander Koptsev, 20, struck out at random before being pushed to the ground by Rabbi Yitzhak Kogan (who had been stabbed) and his son. The attacker is in police custody. One man was in critical condition and at least four others are in serious condition, medical officials said.
