The Mexican Embassy has said that two Mexican citizens were among those injured after a taxi drove into a crowd in central Moscow on Saturday. 

In a tweet, the embassy said the women were lightly injured but that their condition was stable. 

At least seven people were injured after a taxi drove onto the pavement on Moscow's Ilyinka Ulitsa on Saturday afternoon.

A witness at the scene told The Moscow Times that some of the victims had been wearing Mexican team colors.
