VIDEO shows first minutes of deadly Moscow terrorist attack

At least 133 people were killed and over a hundred were injured when assailants shot their way into a concert hall on Friday, where they started a massive fire

Video has emerged on social media purportedly showing the moment when terrorists broke into Moscow’s Crocus City concert hall on Friday, when a deadly shooting, followed by a massive blaze at the venue, left over a hundred killed and scores injured.

In the footage, the assailants can be seen shooting at the glass doors, while visitors are trying to escape in horror. Several men intended to hide behind the furniture. The author of the video reportedly managed to escape the attackers.

According to the latest official data, at least 133 people died and over 100 were injured in the deadly shooting and subsequent fire sparked by a group of gunmen who stormed the Crocus City concert hall, a large music venue just outside of the Russian capital. The incursion happened before a concert by the Russian rock band Picnic. The venue, which has an estimated capacity of 7,500, was almost full.

The terrorists killed unarmed security guards at the entrance to the venue, and blocked it before continuing their rampage inside. Then, the assailants set the building on fire.
