A taxi driver from Kyrgyzstan left the street and rammed multiple pedestrians on the sidewalk in Moscow near Red Square today, injuring Mexican tourists in Moscow for the World Cup, as well as others. No one was killed.
Moscow Says Foiled Terrorist Plot (Video)
The authorities declared the driver lost control, but if you watch the video, that is not a plausible explanation. It is obvious this was a terror attack. The driver ran away as well after the incident.
“Moscow authorities said the taxi driver, identified as a man with a Kyrgyz driver’s license, lost control of his vehicle on June 16 and injured at least seven people when the taxi drove onto a sidewalk near Red Square, a popular tourist destination. Video of the incident posted on social media shows the car veering out of standstill traffic and accelerating onto the sidewalk, mowing down pedestrians. He then flees the car as bystanders attempt to apprehend him,” wrote RFREL.
