Nightclub Blast In Russia ‘Kills Over 100’
At least 100 people have been killed in an explosion at a nightclub in Russia, reports say.
Explosion in Perm, about 700 miles from Moscow
News agencies quoted police as saying the blast had been caused by firecrackers.
Around 60 others are thought to have been hurt in the explosion in the city of Perm, about 700 miles east of the capital Moscow.
It rocked the nightclub where around 200 people were inside, police reportedly said
Earlier reports said 15 people had been killed and another 60 were injured.
“The explosion occurred in the Lame Horse bar in Perm,” Interfax news agency quoted a police official as saying.
A spokeswoman for the regional Emergency Situations Ministry confirmed that there were injuries.
But she did not give the number of casualties.
Meanwhile, a Muslim woman is charging someone in the US with a hate crime because someone tugged at her headscarf. The Headscarf was taken to the linen hospital where it received the best possible attention and is out now but is under close observation. Seems like Muslims have murdered over 150 people in Russia alone this week though. Of course the real crime, was someone tugged a scarf in the US at a supermarket.
“Pulling a woman’s head scarf is clearly a hate crime and should therefore be investigated as such,” said Christina Abraham, the Chicago civil rights director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Good to see CAIR has its priorities in order. Wouldn’t want to see them try and stop Muslims world wide from trying to kill everyone all over the place. Clearly they are needed to protect bits of cloth in the USA.
Dec 5 8:33 AM it would appear at this moment that the deaths and injuries at this club were the result of a pyrotechnical error, very similar to what happened some years ago at a New York club with the band ‘White Snake’. However I did not rush to report this last night as the train bombing in Russia was first reported as “a domestic anti immigration group”. So I didn’t feel it was necessary to put every report of cause in as political correctness was invented by Russians after all. In any case at this time it does appear to have been a tragedy rather than an emergency to quote stratfor.
