Moscow’s traffic management authority said the taxi driver had a driver’s license issued in Kyrgyzstan, a mainly Muslim ex-Soviet republic. The driver, in custody, told police he had not driven into the crowd on purpose. (Take a look at the video below. It was very deliberate. And if it wasn’t, why did he try to run away?)
Reuters The incident took place as residents and visiting soccer fans thronged the center of Moscow on a balmy summer evening, a short distance from the Kremlin. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said: “There was an unpleasant incident with a taxi. The driver lost control of the vehicle.” (Yeah, sure he did. NOT)
The police said seven people were injured in the incident. Moscow city’s healthcare department said earlier that eight had been hurt and taken to hospital, of whom seven were in a satisfactory condition, while one woman was seriously hurt.
