Police Hunt Serial Killer

MOSCOW (Reuters) -- Russian police in the Urals city of Perm are on the trail of a serial killer who has claimed his seventh victim in just a few months, Itar-Tass said Tuesday.

In the latest attack, the killer raped and stabbed a young woman in a lift, leaving her body on a landing. Itar-Tass did not say exactly when it took place.

Police earlier released a suspect after women who had survived an attack failed to identify him.
