i know it's not the place to post somethng like this.. but since some of us have been to Russia, or live there or love Russia or just cheer for a russian player... i think it's kinda important to take some times and read this article..which break my heart.. i know there will always haves ome terrorism around the world, but what the terrorist do sometimes it's very terrible, for me, when somebody attack the president or some important things in a country dont really affect me ..it affect me.. i find it stupid but what make me sad, mad is when they attack children.. so please... iknow the article is long.. but just take 2 sec....just put u in the shoes of the kids that was at this school... just try to live what they felt....yeah the attack in USA was terrible yeah, but this time, it'S children..and i find it so damn sad that CNN or whatever in USA did not put some TIMES to make a damn breaking news and talk about it on tv..yeah they will received some help from USA and Canada and other place, but if it was USA that has been attacked and not Russia im sure every country would right now, send help and bla bla bla...What's the solution? Send a bomb to Chechnya and Iraqi and all of the other hum ''musulmans'' places?i know it's not a solution but why children?
oh well i know it's a long article.. but it wont kill you to read this...
More than a dozen attackers wearing suicide bomb belts seized a southern Russian school in a region bordering Chechnya on Wednesday, taking hostage about 400 people -- half of them children -- and threatening to blow up the building if police tried to rescue them.
As many as eight people were reported killed, one of them a parent.
Hours into the desperate standoff, security officials said they had made brief contact with the hostage-takers who stormed the school in Belsen, a town in North Ossetia about 15 kilometres north of the regional capital, Vladikavkaz.
Russian special forces wearing camouflage and carrying heavy-calibre machine-guns surrounded Middle School No. 1. About 1,000 people, mostly parents, were massed near the three-storey building demanding information and accusing the government of failing to protect their children.
Kazbek Dzantiyev, head of the North Ossetia region's Interior Ministry, said the hostage-takers have threatened "for every destroyed fighter, they will kill 50 children and for every injured fighter -- 20 (children),'' the ITAR-Tass news agency reported.
At one point, a girl wearing a floral print dress and a red bow in her hair fled the school, her hand held by a flak-jacketed soldier. An older woman followed them.
Ruslan Ayamov, spokesman for North Ossetia's Interior Ministry, told The Associated Press that 12 children and one adult managed to escape after hiding in the building's boiler room.
The attack was the latest blamed on secessionist Chechen rebels, coming a day after a suicide bomber killed nine people in Moscow and a week after near-simultaneous explosions blamed on terrorists caused two Russian planes to crash, killing all 90 people on board. The surge in violence was apparently timed around last Sunday's Chechen presidential election.
"In essence, war has been declared on us, where the enemy is unseen and there is no front,'' Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov said.
The militants inside the school released one hostage with a list of their demands, including the release of fighters detained in a string of attacks on police facilities in neighbouring Ingushetia in June, ITAR-Tass reported.
They also seek talks with regional officials and a well-known pediatrician, Leonid Roshal, who aided hostages during the deadly seizure of a Moscow theatre in 2002, news reports said.
Parents of the seized children recorded a videocassette appeal to President Vladimir Putin to fulfil the hostage-takers' demands, officials said. The text of the appeal was not immediately available.
Putin interrupted his working holiday Wednesday in the Black Sea resort of Sochi for a second time and returned to the capital. On arrival at the airport, he held an immediate meeting with the heads of Russia's Interior Ministry and Federal Security Service, the Interfax news agency said.
The standoff began after a ceremony marking the first day of the Russian school year, when it was likely that many parents had accompanied their children.
About 17 attackers, men and women, stormed the building and herded captives into the gymnasium. They forced children to stand at the windows and warned they would blow up the school if police intervened, said Alexei Polyansky, a police spokesman for southern Russia.
A teenage witness, Zarubek Tsumartov, told Russian television he was standing near the school gate with some other people when "I saw three armed people running with guns.''
"At first I thought it was a joke,'' he said. "When they fired in the air and we fled.''
Hours after the seizure, Regional Federal Security Service chief Valery Andreyev said on NTV television that negotiations with the hostage-takers "are just, just beginning'' but that the brief contact had not allowed authorities to evaluate the situation.
ITAR-Tass, citing local hospitals, reported seven people died of their injuries in hospital and one died at the school.
But Regional Emergency Situations Minister Boris Dzgoyev told The Associated Press that two civilians were killed and nine hospitalized, and that two bodies were visible near the school.
Dzgoyev said a girl was also lying near the building, presumably wounded, but officials said the area could not be approached because it was coming under fire.
Fatima Khabalova, spokeswoman for the regional parliament, earlier said one of the dead was a father who brought his child to the school and was shot when he tried to resist the raiders.
The attacks came around Chechnya's presidential elections, a Kremlin-backed vote aimed at undermining support for the insurgents by establishing a modicum of civil order in the war-shattered republic. The previous president, Akhmad Kadyrov, was killed with more than 20 others in a bombing May 9.
The violence was the latest to plague the government of Putin, who came to power vowing to crush the Chechen rebellion. Terrorism fears in Russia have risen markedly following the plane crashes and the suicide bombing outside a Moscow subway station Tuesday night. The blast by a female attacker tore through a busy area between the station and a department store, killing nine people and wounded more than 50.
Authorities said Tuesday that 10 people were killed, but Interfax reported Wednesday that Moscow health officials revised that, saying one man who died in a hospital was not a victim of the blast.
An Islamic website published a statement claiming responsibility for the bombing on behalf of the ``Islambouli Brigades,'' a group that also claimed responsibility for the airliner crashes. The statements could not immediately be verified.
The statement said Tuesday's bombing was a blow against Putin, ``who slaughtered Muslims time and again.''
At a glance
Following, at a glance, are the hostage crises faced by Russian authorities over the last decade:
Sept. 1, 2004: Gunmen seized about 400 people in an elementary school in the southern Russian republic of North Ossetia, demanding the release of fighters detained in connection with June attacks on police facilities in neighbouring Ingushetia.
Oct. 25, 2002: Chechen rebels took about 800 people hostage in a Moscow theatre, demanding that Russian troops withdraw from Chechnya. All 41 attackers were shot and 129 hostages died, most of them succumbing to the gas Russian special forces used when they stormed the theatre.
Jan. 16, 1996: Six Turks and three Russians held 255 hostages on a ferry in the Black Sea, threatening to blow up the ship if Russia didn't halt a battle near Kizlyar, where rebels had taken hostages. The attackers surrendered after three days.
Jan. 9, 1996: Chechen militants seized 3,000 hostages at a hospital in the southern Russian town of Kizlyar. Rebels released most, then headed for Chechnya with about 100 hostages. Were stopped in village and attacked by Russian troops. At least 78 were killed in a weeklong fight.
June 14, 1995: Chechen gunmen took 2,000 hostages at a hospital in the southern Russian town of Budyonnovsk, near Chechnya. After failed attempts at force, Russia negotiated hostages' release after week in exchange for gunmen's escape. More than 100 were killed.
Wednesday's seizure came as terrorism fears in Russia rose markedly following a suicide bombing outside a Moscow subway station on Tuesday night that killed 10 people and injured more than 50, and last week's near-simultaneous crashes of two Russian airliners, killing a total of 90 people, that officials say were terrorist bombings.
The attacks bracketed Sunday's presidential elections in Chechnya, a Kremlin-baked move aimed at undermining support for the insurgents by establishing a modicum of civil order in the war-shattered republic.
Fears that the Chechen rebels aimed to export their fight outside the small republic's borders rose in June in connection with the raids in Ingushetia. In a videotape released several days after the attack, a man appearing to be Basayev claimed responsibility for the assaults and said his fighters had seized huge quantities of arms from police arsenals.
