Russia: attack on a concert hall leaves about 40 dead and over 100 injured

Moscow – Russia’s Federal Security Service said 40 people were killed and more than 100 injured in an attack on a Moscow concert hall on Friday.

The attack, which Russia’s main investigative agency is investigating as a terrorist attack, is the deadliest in recent years.

Several gunmen broke into a large concert hall on the outskirts of Moscow on Friday and shot at those present with automatic weapons, killing and wounding dozens of people and starting a huge fire. Russian media reported that the roof of the place was collapsing.

The attack occurred just days after President Vladimir Putin consolidated his control of the country with a highly orchestrated landslide election victory.

Russian news reports said the attackers threw explosives, causing the massive fire. A video posted on social media showed huge columns of black smoke rising above the building, which can seat more than 6,000 people.
