The number of victims of the terrorist attack in Moscow has risen to 143

Four more victims of the Crocus Town Hall have succumbed to their injuries in the last day

Another three people injured in Friday’s terrorist attack on a Moscow concert venue have died, Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko announced on Wednesday evening.

The death toll from the Crocus Town Hall massacre now stands at 143.

A group of terrorists attacked the venue before the concert, killing people as they moved towards the main hall and eventually setting it on fire. Initial estimates put the death toll at around 130, with 200 more injured by bullets, fires and smoke inhalation.

As of Wednesday morning, 83 survivors were listed by health officials as receiving treatment and 40 had been released. The death toll reached 139 when Murashko noted that there were four victims “extremely serious” state. They appear to have since succumbed to their injuries.

The gunmen left the scene after about 15 minutes and hurried towards the Ukrainian border, where they were arrested on Saturday. They were identified as nationals of Tajikistan. Russian President Vladimir Putin described them as “radical Islamists”.

Several officials in Moscow have suggested that the terrorist attack on Crocus City Hall may have been organized by Ukrainian special services using Islamists as proxies.
