Moscow, Mar 26 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Emergencies Ministry on Tuesday announced the end of rescue works at the Crocus City Hall, where a terrorist attack was perpetrated last Friday.

“The specialists of the Russian Emergencies Ministry completely eliminated the effects of the fire and completed the removal of debris in the Crocus City Hall,” according to a press release published by the Sputnik news agency.
