Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has strongly condemned the heinous attack in Russian capital Moscow last night that resulted in the loss of many precious lives.

In a post on his X handle on Saturday, Prime Minister Shehbaz extended his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims.

The prime minister said that Pakistan stands with Russia at this difficult time.

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Ishaq Dar, on his X account, strongly condemned the dastardly terrorist attack in Moscow and prayed for the victims and their families.

“At this hour of national tragedy, Pakistan stands in solidarity with the people and Government of the Russian Federation,” he further added.

In a separate post on X, the Foreign Office condemned ‘the horrendous attack carried out at a concert hall in Moscow’ and expressed deepest sympathies with the families of the victims.

“At this difficult hour, we stand in solidarity with the people and government of the Russian Federation,” it was added.

Gunmen who opened fire at a Moscow concert hall killed at least 115 people and wounded over 100 while sparking an inferno, authorities said Saturday, with the Islamic State group claiming responsibility.

Attackers dressed in camouflage uniforms entered the building on Friday, opened fire and threw a grenade or incendiary bomb, according to a journalist for the RIA Novosti news agency at the scene.

Fire quickly spread through the Crocus City concert hall in Moscow's northern Krasnogorsk suburb, as smoke filled the building and screaming visitors rushed to emergency exits.
