US National Security Council warned Russia of a potential attack

# The US National Security Council says it warned Russia of a potential attack by the Islamic State group on large gatherings earlier this month. At least 137 people, including three children, were killed in an attack last week Friday evening at a concert venue in Moscow. The Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Kremlin at the time dismissed the warning as propaganda. Meanwhile, the White House has rejected claims from Russian president Vladimir Putin that Ukraine was involved in the attack.
