Russia will not comment on terrorist attack investigation

Moscow, Mar 25 (Prensa Latina) The Kremlin will not comment on the investigation into the March 22 attack on the Crocus City Hall concert hall, located in Krasnogorsk, on the northwestern outskirts of Moscow, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today.

‘An investigation is underway, and it is extremely incorrect on the part of the presidential administration to comment on the course of the investigation.

We will not do so,’ the spokesman told reporters in response to the question of which seven of the eleven detained following the terrorist attack are.

He also called to follow the information provided by law enforcement agencies.

Last Friday, a group of camouflage-clad gunmen opened fire at the Crocus City Hall concert hall in the city of Krasnogorsk, on the northwestern outskirts of Moscow, just minutes before the start of a concert by the Russian rock band Picnic.

The shooting was followed by a fire, which, according to the Emergencies Ministry, affected an area of almost 13 thousand square meters.

According to the latest official data, the terrorist attack left 137 people dead and about 180 wounded.

So far, 11 people involved in the attack have been arrested, including the four attackers who opened fire on the crowd at Crocus City Hall.
