Mass shooting in Moscow mall | 22 March 2024 | Crocus City, a large mall and music venue just northwest of the Russian capital, came under attack by unknown assailants late on Friday. Several individuals armed with assault rifles attacked visitors, shooting them on sight at point-blank range. The attackers also targeted a concert hall at the mall, setting it on fire and triggering a major blaze in the whole building. The Russian authorities are investigating the incident as a terrorist attack. No party immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, while the gunmen did not make any statements or attempt to take hostages, apparently just seeking to kill as many as possible. According to preliminary estimates by Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), at least 40 people have been killed and more than 100 injured in the attack.
