ISIS claimed responsibility for the bloody attack in Moscow

The terrorist group confirmed this in a statement released on Telegram. It also stated that the attackers had "withdrawn safely to their bases."

Moscow experienced an attack that left at least one hundred people dead and another hundred people injured on Friday afternoon. The incident occurred at Crocus City Hall, minutes before the start of a concert by the band Picnic. Hours later, the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attacks.

According to the terrorist group in a statement released via Telegram, members of the Islamic State "attacked a large meeting... on the outskirts of Moscow, the Russian capital." It also claimed that the attackers had "withdrawn safely to their bases."

The band Picnic was preparing to go on stage when a group of people in camouflage clothing entered the venue and opened fire randomly. They threw what appeared to be a grenade or firebomb.
