ISIS claims responsibility for Moscow concert shooting | Death toll rises to 60

 

The Islamic State
(ISIS) has claimed responsibility for a shooting at the Crocus City Hall in
Moscow, the Russian capital.

At the time of the attack on Friday night, the death toll stood at 40.

The number of fatalities has now risen to at least 60,
including children, according to Russian state news agency RIA.

No fewer than 145 persons were injured in the attack while
the death toll is expected to rise.

The terror group took responsibility for the attack in a
short statement published by ISIS-affiliated news agency Amaq on Telegram but
did not provide evidence to support the claim.

RIA said the attackers who showed up in camouflage and
without masks allegedly fled in
a white car that had a Renault symbol with a tinted rear window.

Before they fled, they sprayed bullets from automatic
weapons on the people at the concert and threw a grenade, setting the hall on
fire.

The roof of the concert hall was said to have partially
collapsed.

The Investigative Committee of Russia and the operational
units of the ministry of internal affairs said they are investigating the
potential terrorist attack.

Material evidence, including weapons and ammunition, have
been withdrawn from the crime scene and all necessary examinations, including
genetic, ballistic, and fingerprinting, are already being carried out, the
committee added.

The committee also said recordings from video surveillance
cameras are being withdrawn and studied and autopsies will be carried out.
