Muslim passenger shot in face in terrifying Russia subway attack
Warning: some viewers may find the video quite disturbing.
Shocking video footage has emerged of a suspected racist or Islamophobic shooting on the Moscow metro as two men armed with handguns attacked another passenger.
The attackers drew guns in the vicious assault which was caught on footage obtained by Life News, a major Russian media outlet.
One of the attackers brandished a pistol and lashed out at his defenceless victim, then pointed the pistol in his face before firing a second round.
The other attacker then shot into the abdomen of Khashim Latipov, 30, from Dagestan.
He kicked him and shot again, putting the gun at the man’s head, as other passengers fled to the far end of the carriage.
Faces of both attackers were caught by the security camera in the November 17 incident. Miraculously, Lapitov survived the attack but is seriously wounded.
The footage was released in a bid to catch the attackers.
