An unidentified man broke into a synagogue in central Moscow and wounded a security guard from a traumatic pistol, a source with law enforcement authorities told Interfax.
The man had a canister apparently filled with an inflammable liquid and a
traumatic pistol on him and fired the gun on one of the security
officers, wounding him.
Other security guards managed to catch the assailant at the scene.
The injured security officer has been sent to hospital.
