Alwaght- The Russian authorities arrested 4 suspects in the terrorist attack argeting the Crocus City Hall complex, the Russian news agency TASS reported earlier today.

Russia's Investigative Committee said the death toll rose to 115 from the attack in which camouflage-clad gunmen opened fire with automatic weapons at concertgoers near the capital on Friday.

Russian lawmaker Alexander Khinshtein said the attackers had fled in a Renault vehicle that was spotted by police in the Bryansk region, about 340 km (210 miles) southwest of Moscow on Friday night, and disobeyed instructions to stop.

While two were arrested after a car chase, two others fled into a forest, but they were later caught and arrested as confirmed by the Kremlin.

"After committing the terrorist attack, the criminals intended to cross the Russian-Ukrainian border and had relevant contacts on the Ukrainian side of the border," the FSB said, confirming that work is underway to determine all the circumstances of the incident.
