(Kizlyar) On the border with Chechnya a  gunman has opened fire on a church congregation after they left a Sunday service killing 5 women and injuring another 3 . The 22 year old gunman was shot dead.

It appears that the gunman accompanied by his wife tried to force their way into the church, however they were thwarted, when faced with armed police, he was cornered , whilst his wife ran, she has since been picked up
Pictures of the gunman show he sported  a beard which is very fashionable amongst the followers of a very peaceful religion which may explain how according to an Orthodox priest the gunman shouted 'Allahu Akbar' during the shooting.

Alexander Shuvalov  the Mayor of Kizlyar said that after the shooting security measures have been strengthened in Orthodox churches. Christians make up 2% of the population of Dagestan with Muslims making up 83%
