Confirmed that all three terrorists were carrying “suicide vests”, but they were not explosives. It is obvious that the attackers wanted to sow as much panic and confusion.
It confirmed the death of seven people, 48 were injured, many of them remain in hospital, some with “extremely serious injuries”.
Experts say that 50 shots by the police, who are trained to hit targets with the first shot, is an impressive figure. Such intensive shooting, probably due to the fact that the police feared that the wounded terrorists detonated the explosives.
