A 57-year-old mosque guard was killed in a suspected robbery attempt
A 57-year-old mosque guard was killed in a suspected robbery attempt early on Tuesday in Kazan, the capital of Russia's Volga Republic of Tatarstan, a spokesman for the local Muslim authority said.

"It is evident that robbery was a motive for the murder of Habulla Nafiyev," the spokesman said.

On Monday the predominantly Muslim Russian republic celebrated the main Islamic holiday of Eid al Adha, known locally as Kurban Bairam, and it was probably expected that a large sum of contribution money was in the mosque. However, the donations were transferred to "a safe place" after the holiday.

Earlier this year, a guard at another mosque in the republic was severely beaten in a robbery attempt.
