MOSCOW (Reuters) - The suspect in an attack on a college in the Crimean city of Kerch shot himself and his body has been found inside the college, the TASS news agency cited Russia’s National Anti-terrorism Committee as saying on Wednesday.

The attack, in which 18 people were killed, was carried out by a 22-year-old male student of the college, Sergei Aksyonov, Crimea’s Russian-backed head, was quoted as saying earlier on Wednesday by the Interfax news agency.
