2 Foreigners Stabbed

Two unrelated stabbings left a Belarussian citizen dead and a Tajik native injured in Moscow, Interfax reported Wednesday.

The Belarussian, Igor Linnik, 33, received two stab wounds while traveling between the Strogino and Krylatskoye metro stations in western Moscow on Tuesday and died on the platform of the Molodyozhnaya station shortly afterward, the report said, citing the Investigative Committee.

No suspects were identified, but investigators were examining footage from surveillance cameras, it said.

An unidentified 24-year-old Tajik citizen was stabbed by an unidentified man during an argument in eastern Moscow on Tuesday, Interfax reported, without elaborating.
