WHAT HAPPENED IN BESLAN?
The Beslan tragedy is the worst terror-related human catastrophe in
the history of Russia. There are at least 335 victims, mostly children, who died
as a direct result of this terror act. Over 700 victims,
also mostly children, have been hospitalized, a large number of them
with very serious injuries.
On September 11, 2001, Russian people and the whole world stood by the people of
the United States, Canada, and all other countries whose citizens became
victims of that unprecedented terrorist attack. The Beslan hostage crisis is an example of the same type of terrorism that has
perpetrated the September 11th attack.
