    Been following it over the last 12 hours or so. Absolutely horrendous. Looking like an IS cell might be behind it. Regardless of what their equally barbaric dictator is doing in Ukraine, this is horrific. They've already started making arrests, and it'll be interesting to see what the consequences are. Since they were kicked out of the European Council, they no longer have any obligations to their previous moratorium on the death penalty.

    And we all know how Putin likes to deal with his opponents.

    RIP to the civilians caught up in this mess.

    I imagine there'll be a few who stand a bit too close to a high up open window.

    Don’t be surprised if it eventually comes out that Putin did this himself. He’s got plenty of previous for that…

    They were warned about a significant immediate attack and Putin chose to ignore it.

    Funny they just announced all the attackers have been caught. Who'd have thought, eh.

    Amazing how terrorists are usually shot dead but Russia managed to get hold of them all still alive.

    False flag operation then blame Ukraine. It's on bbc news app now that Putin claims suspects were trying to flee to Ukraine. Can't see for a minute that they'd have anything to do with this.
    He's feeling even more cocky since his 'landslide' election victory

    Why would you want to spend a fortune on a trail, keep them alive at a cost to the tax payer,then wait for another attempt to free them through hostage taking. Let SF do what they are trained for and SF safety by killing them all.

    Terrorists are quite happy to be killed to be seen as a 'martyr'. Keeping them alive and locked up for the rest of their days in solitary where their warped views can't be shared at the risk of brainwashing others is the way to go about it.

    Interesting, terrorist who kills innocent women and children castigates terrorists that kill innocent women and children.

    They're quite fond of a show trial in Russia.

    Yeah, feel for the innocent civilians in this, but for Putin and his arse-lickers it’s just faux outrage imo.

    4 men charged by Russia, apparently they were heading for the Ukrainian border after the attacks, surprise surprise. Seems legit that the security forces just so happened to apprehend 4 terrorists so quickly after the attacks and it's not like they've had a confession beaten out of them, oh no...

    Allegedly one of them lost an eye and suffered a significant genital injury...

    It is possible that these guys were the attackers. It is also possible that they were four randomers who are now under arrest for the attacks. And it isn't like we don't haven't done that either...

    IS have release footage apparently of the attack, so it was definitely them, doubt even Putin would do this to his own people. At the end of the day Putin helped Assad smash ISIS in Syria big time. There is a large Muslim minority in CIS, doesn't take much to get them riled up to fight for the cause, as we have seen over here.

    ISIS not happy with the barbaric behaviour of Russia to disrespect their terrorists with actions such as cutting off an ear and electricuting genitals.

    Things are going to escalate.

    They’ve definitely been roughed up, something still doesn’t add up though 4 gunmen and all 4 arrested and not shot dead? Smells fishy to be I mean did they just surrender? What’s that Mr Russian special forces course I’ll lay my weapons down after killing 133 innocent folk.

    "still doesn’t add up though 4 gunmen and all 4 arrested and not shot dead? Smells fishy"

    It crossed my mind, usually Islamic terrorists can't wait to be martyred.
