A man's been arrested following a knife attack at a church in Moscow, Russia.
It's reported the 26 year old entered the orthodox place of worship in the Lipetsk region on Sunday and wounded two people.
"He looked like an ordinary parishioner and didn't shout anything during the attack," parish priest Kirill Sladkov Sladkov said, according to the website of the Moscow Patriarchate.
"He took out a knife and struck a blow to my assistant, later injuring a second person before being apprehended."
The attacker's motive is unknown with police not considering it be a terrorist incident.
The two victims received treatment at hospital but have since been released.
