MOSCOW: Five children injured in this week's school shooting in the Russian city Kazan remain under close observation but are "stable", a spokesperson for the Tatarstan regional government said on Thursday.
The five victims in question all suffered gunshot wounds or broken bones during Tuesday's attack, in which a graduate of the school No. 175 is alleged to have attacked with a gun, leaving nine dead and 23 wounded, reports dpa news agency.
Most of the victims were students.
