Aljazeera in a report stated that at least five camouflage-clad gunmen with automatic weapons burst into the packed concert hall in the Russian capital’s western suburbs on Friday night as the audience was gathering to watch the veteran rock band Picnic, shooting into the crowd and setting off explosives that started a massive fire.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Yusuf Tuggar, in a statement, commiserated with the Russian Federation over the tragic attack said to have killed 60 people at a concert in Moscow.

“We convey our deepest condolences to the people and government of the Russian Federation on the tragic attack carried out at the Crocus Concert Hall in Moscow.

“The attack resulted in the deaths of innocent people and injuries to more than a hundred others.

“We also pray for the quick recovery of those injured. At this challenging time, we stand in brotherhood with the government and the Russian Federation.

“We send our deepest sympathy and condolences to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,” Tuggar said.
