Over 60 killed, 100+ wounded in horrific terrorist attack at Moscow concert hall; ISIS claims responsibility

Date:

“Horror in Moscow as ISIS strikes heart of city”

Last night rocked the Russian capital in the worst way possible as terrorists opened fire and set off explosives at a packed concert, leaving a tragic loss of life in their wake. More than 60 people were killed and over 145 injured in the brutal attack at Crocus City Hall, a large music venue that was hosting a performance by the band Picnic.

Witnesses described scenes of chaos and panic as masked gunmen fired indiscriminately into the audience of over 6,000 music fans. The attackers also threw explosives into the crowd, instantly igniting a raging fire that consumed much of the building. Concert-goers struggled to escape the inferno as flames quickly engulfed the space. For some, it was a harrowing escape from hell; for others, the horrific ordeal proved fatal.

Russian authorities wasted no time in launching a massive investigation into the bloodshed. Early signs pointed to terrorism as the cause, and those suspicions were soon confirmed with a statement claiming responsibility from ISIS. The Islamic State's local branch in Afghanistan apparently helped orchestrate the co-ordinated attack on civilian “infidels”.

While the precise fate of the terrorists remains unclear, the aftermath of their heinous act is all too real. Grief hangs heavy over Moscow today as the nation mourns the many innocent lives cut short in their prime. Families are left to grapple with unfathomable loss after simply wanting a night of musical enjoyment. It's a cruel reminder of the dark reality that terror can strike anywhere, anytime.
