هجوم على قاعة حفلات موسيقية في موسكو

By Jordi Bou

March 23, 2024 - الكرملين يقول إن 11 شخصاً اعتقلوا، بينهم أربعة مسلحين مشتبه بهم. جهاز الأمن الفيدرالي الروسي (FSB) يقول إن المسلحين الذين اعتقلوا كانوا متجهين إلى الحدود الأوكرانية – كييف تنفي تورطها.

Several gunmen in combat fatigues entered the Crocus City Hall concert hall on the outskirts of Moscow on Friday night and opened fire in popular music venue, killing at least 115 people and wounding more than 140 others in a brazen terror attack.

The assailants threw explosives, triggering a massive blaze at the hall, which can accommodate 6,200, according to Russian news outlets.

Militant Islamist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest in Russia for 20 years. But there were indications that Russia was pursuing a Ukrainian link, despite a statement from Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak that Kyiv had nothing to do with it.
