1 dead in Belarus shopping center chain saw attack

MINSK, Belarus (AP) " Belarusian police say a teenager attacked two girls in a shopping center in the capital of Minsk with a chain saw and an ax, killing one of them.

Police spokesman Alexander Barsukov said the 17-year-old suspect from Belarus was arrested but so far had not told police anything.

He said surveillance video showed the boy entered the shopping center carrying a guitar case in which he had hidden the chain saw and the ax. The spokesman said after attacking the two girls, he threatened other people. It was not clear how he was stopped.
