SEAToday.com, Moscow-The death toll from the terrorist attack increased to 133 during the clearing of rubble in the Crocus City Hall. Searches continue, the Investigative Committee of Russia reported.

Eyewitnesses recalled the moment that attackers armed with guns and incendiary devices stormed the venue on Friday night.

Testimony emerged on social media, detailing the horrific scenes as survivors recalled playing dead to escape from the concert hall, where fires were still burning on Saturday.

“They [the assailants] were standing there at the exit,” one woman said on Instagram. “We got up and started walking. They saw us. Some of them ran back and started shooting at people. I fell on the floor and pretended I was dead. And the girl next to me was killed.

“Then the flames flared up and they closed the door. They probably couldn’t lock it. I lay breathing under the door. After some time, I crawled out and looked around, there was smoke everywhere, and I crawled towards the exit.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin says all four gunmen have been arrested, and that the suspects were trying to flee to Ukraine. “The criminals were cold-blooded and purposefully going to kill, shoot our citizens and our children at point-blank range," Putin stated in his speech. He also said that whoever is involved with this act of terror will be identified and punished.
