Russia says 140 people killed, 360 injured in Moscow concert hall attack

The number of fatalities and injuries in last week's concert hall attack in Russia’s Moscow region rose to 140 and 360, respectively, local authorities said on Wednesday.

"Unfortunately, one of the victims, who was previously in extremely serious condition, died, the doctors did everything possible," Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko told journalists in Moscow.

Previously, the death toll from the concert hall attack stood at 139.

In an earlier statement, a Health Ministry center told the state media that the number of those injured rose to 360.

“As of Wednesday morning, 360 people were injured as a result of the terrorist attack, including 11 children,” a representative of the All-Russian Centre for Disaster Medicine told TASS.

The representative further said 92 victims were hospitalized, with 63 people already discharged, while outpatient care was provided to 205 injured.

On Friday, gunmen opened fire at Crocus City Hall in the city of Krasnogorsk in the Moscow region.

The Investigative Committee said it detained 11 people, including four perpetrators, in the border region of Bryansk, who were on their way to Ukraine.

Moscow's Basmanny District Court late Sunday charged the four perpetrators with terrorism and approved their pre-trial detentions until May 22.
