The Islamic State terrorist group, formerly active in Iraq and Syria, has released a photo purportedly showing the four gunmen who carried out the assault on the concert hall in Moscow. The group's Amaq agency stated on Telegram that the attack was part of an ongoing conflict between the Islamic State and nations opposing its ideology.

Additionally, footage of the attack has been released, allegedly filmed by the perpetrators en route to the venue. The footage depicts at least three individuals, one carrying a backpack, another armed with a knife, and a third wielding a rifle.

Russian state-run Channel One television has aired footage of the four alleged gunmen being detained and questioned by authorities. The suspects were reportedly apprehended in Khatsun village near the Russia-Belarus border.

During interrogation, one suspect confessed to shooting people in exchange for monetary compensation, claiming to have been offered half a million rubles ($5,425) for the act.
