A The list, updated by that ministry, is based on data from the Russian Ministry of Health and is verified by the results of forensic examinations.

According to Russian investigators, the cause of death of spectators who were in the venue waiting for the start of the concert was gunshot wounds and asphyxiation due to smoke from the fire set by the attackers.

The Federal Security Service (FSB) reported the arrest of 11 people in connection with the attack.

Among those detained are four suspects of having perpetrated the attack (who are accused of an “act of terrorism”, a crime punishable in Russia by life imprisonment), the director of the FSB, Alexander Bortnikov, communicated to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

The suspects, who offered resistance, were detained on a road in the Bryansk region, near the border with Ukraine, where, according to Russian authorities, they allegedly intended to flee.

Russia admitted that the attack on the outskirts of Moscow, around 20 kilometers from the center of the Russian capital, was committed by Islamists – following the claim by the ‘jihadist’ group Islamic State (IS) -, but insists on continuing to search for a “Ukrainian fingerprint”.

Hours earlier, Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko announced that around 80 people injured in the March 22 attack on a concert hall in a Moscow suburb are still hospitalized, four of whom are in critical condition.
