New Delhi: Eleven men including four gunmen got arrested in the deadliest attack on Russia. The Moscow concert hall attack on Friday is the worst attack in the last 20 years, which claimed 143 people’s lives including children.

The attackers were heading towards Russia’s border with Ukraine and had contacts with the Ukrainian side, said the Russian security service FSB. Refuting all the allegations the Ukrainian side called them as Russian provocative propaganda. Denying Ukraine’s link, the US has termed the attack “terrible”.
