Four men accused of carrying out an attack at a rock concert on Friday that killed at least 137 people and wounded over 180 others have faced court in Moscow, charged with committing an act of terrorism. The men have been named as Dalerdzhon Mirzoyev, Saidakrami Murodali Rachabalizoda, Shamsidin Fariduni and Muhammadsobir Fayzov – all from Tajikistan. Officials said Mirzoyev and Rachabalizoda have admitted their guilt, but reports note they were tortured during interrogations… Claims that the attack was carried out by an Afghan branch of Islamic State have been verified after the group posted graphic footage of the attack. But Russian officials continue to say that Ukraine helped the attackers – something Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called “absurd”. All 4 suspects will be held in pre-trial detention until at least 22 May.
