Bei Überfall auf Moskauer Konzerthalle sterben 140 Besucher

By Jordi Bou

March 23, 2024 - Russland hat bisher 11 Personen verhaftet, davon dürften vier zu den Bewaffneten gehören, die wahllos auf die Besucher der Konzerthalle schossen. Der Kreml meldet bisher 140 Tote und über 100 Verletzte.

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.
