The Kremlin is organising an international security conference to review its tactics. Deutsche Welle talks to Russian Deputy Minister for Defence, Anatoly Antonov, about the fight against Islamist terror and about Russia's wider defence strategy.
Anatoly Antonov will become Russian ambassador to the US at a time when bilateral relations are at a post-Cold War low. He also takes the job at a time when the role of Russian ambassador is under scrutiny in Washington.
A man stabbed several passers-by in the Siberian city of Surgut, Russia, before he was gunned down by the police. Russian officials said it was "unlikely" the rampage was a terror strike, disputing the alleged IS link.
The US is increasingly moving away from its anti-Assad course. Syria's president appears increasingly confident, announcing that conditions will apply to governments that seek to rejig their relationships with Damascus.
Spanish police have foiled a bomb and car attack just hours after a deadly van rampage left 13 people dead in Barcelona. Five suspected attackers were killed during the second incident in a Catalan coastal town.
