Russia declares day of national mourning following Moscow attack

Russia in Mourning After Deadly Massacre at Concert Hall: ISIS Claims Responsibility for Tragic Attack

On Sunday, Russia is observing a day of national mourning after a tragic massacre in a concert hall in Moscow. The attack was claimed by the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) and resulted in 133 deaths. Investigators reported that the attackers burst into Crocus City Hall on Friday evening, opening fire with automatic weapons on the crowd and starting a fire with a flammable liquid.

President Vladimir Putin denounced the “barbaric terrorist” act in a televised address on Saturday and promised to punish those responsible. He announced the arrest of four perpetrators who were caught while trying to flee towards Ukraine. The Kremlin had reported the arrest of a total of 11 individuals, including the four terrorists involved in the attack.

The suspects, described as “foreign citizens”, were captured in the Bryansk region near the Ukrainian and Belarusian borders. Search and rescue efforts at the concert hall continue as authorities use heavy equipment to dismantle damaged structures and remove debris. A video allegedly filmed by the attackers at the concert hall was shared on social media accounts linked to ISIS, showing armed individuals firing weapons and starting a fire in the lobby of Crocus City Hall.

The international community has expressed concern over a potential escalation of violence in the region following this tragic event. Efforts to investigate the motives and connections of those responsible for the attack are ongoing as Russia mourns the loss of lives in this senseless act of violence.
