130 people dead in Shooting at Moscow concert venue

  • More than 130 killed: ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack at a popular concert venue near Moscow Friday that left at least 133 dead and more wounded after assailants stormed the complex with guns and incendiary devices. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the attack a “barbaric terrorist act.”

Suspects arrested: Russian authorities said all four suspects directly involved in the attack were arrested near the border with Ukraine, along with several others, and are in custody of investigators in Moscow. Ukraine has firmly denied any connection.

Global reaction: Leaders from around the world expressed condolences and condemned the brutal attack. The White House said ISIS “must be defeated everywhere.”

Earlier warnings: The US had warned Moscow that ISIS militants were determined to target Russia. This month, the US embassy in Russia said it was “monitoring reports that extremists have imminent plans to target large gatherings in Moscow,” including at concerts.
