Russia: Beslan mourns victims of 2004 deadly school siege

Russian Federation, Beslan
September 01, 2019 at 09:06 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hundreds of people came to Beslan's school number one on Sunday, to honour the memory of people who died in a school siege 15 years ago.

The school bell rang starting the flower laying ceremony at 9:15 Moscow time - the time the first shots were heard back in 2004.

In 2004 terrorists seized the school and captured more than 1100 people including school students, their parents and teachers on September 1, which is officially the first day of school in Russia. Hostages spent three days in the school sports hall without food or water.

The Beslan school siege left more than 330 people dead including 186 children with 800 people injured.
