A teenager in Belarus is suspected of stabbing a teacher and a classmate to death with a knife, authorities say.
The Investigative Committee said that a student of a school in the town of Stouptsy, 65 kilometers southwest from Minsk, attacked a female teacher and three classmates on February 11.
A teacher and one student were killed, while two other students were hospitalized with wounds.
The suspect, identified as a high school student born in 2003, fled the scene but was captured shortly after the attack.
The Investigative Committee's directorate in the Minsk region has launched an investigation into the killings.
