A 15-year-old boy who hails from Belarus has today, January 11, stabbed his teacher and a classmate to death while seriously injuring two others, according to authorities, in a rare school attack in the ex-Soviet nation.
According to some local sources, the 15-Year-Old Teen got to the school just before the commencement of the first lesson and stabbed his history teacher in the neck, fatally injuring her.
The 15-Year-Old teen then went on to enter a neighbouring classroom which was close to his own and murdered a student, before escaping through the window and injuring two more on his way out of the school.
In addition, it was also gathered from close sources that Police close to the area arrested the teenage attacker some two hours later after the incident of stabbing his teacher to death and injuring several others.

The regional office of the interior ministry in Belarus confirmed that a 53-year-old teacher and one student had been killed by the teenage boy, while two other students were present in an intensive care unit at the moment.
The incident which took the life of a 53-year-old teacher and injured one student took place in Stolbtsy, a town 40 miles (70 kilometres) south-west of the capital Minsk.
According to reports from the media, the attacker deleted his social media account just a day before the killings.
It was also noted that school killings are rare in authoritarian Belarus and elsewhere in the former USSR.
In 2018, around October, a student at a secondary school in Kerch, Crimea, murdered 20 people and injured more than 40 other people in a planned gun attack.
Authorities in Belarus laid the blames on globalisation and social networks respectively for bringing the phenomenon of school shootings from the United States.
