Memorial services were held over the weekend for those killed at the KRYLYA rock festival in north western MOSCOW. Huge crowds gathered to pay tribute and lay flowers for those injured and killed.

Of the 40,000 strong crowd, 15 were killed outright by the two bombs which were detonated by a pair of female suicide bombers. Many more festival goers are currently fighting for their lives in hospital.

Forensic teams are still sifting through the debris to find out whether the bombs were the work of Chechen rebels. President Vladimir Putin has vowed he will not be thrown off course by terrorism. “A bloody and vile crime has been committed, a crime against civilians,” he told CNN.
