Armed Men Open Fire at Moscow Concert Hall, Causing Chaos

Reports from Russia indicate that attackers threw explosives, causing a large fire at Crocus City Hall in Moscow’s western area. Videos on social media show thick black smoke billowing from the building. Unidentified gunmen opened fire at a concert hall in the Moscow region of Russia, resulting in the deaths of at least 93 individuals.

The incident occurred during a concert by the popular Russian rock band, Picnic, at the hall, which can hold over 6,000 people. While some reports suggest visitors were being evacuated, there are concerns that some individuals may be trapped inside due to the fire.

According to Russia’s state news agencies, at least three individuals in military attire fired weapons during the attack. Gunfire can be heard in numerous videos, with some showing armed individuals moving through the mall and others showing attackers shooting at close range.

The assault came after warnings from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and other Western embassies advising against crowded places in the city due to a potential attack. Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed these warnings as attempts to intimidate Russians.

The perpetrators behind the attack remain unidentified, and investigations are ongoing.
