Beslan Anniversary

Via RFE/RL:

The North Ossetian town of Beslan is beginning three days of mourning to mark the ninth anniversary of a school hostage taking that left 334 people — including 186 children — dead.

Most of the hostages that died were killed when Russian security forces stormed the school and ended the siege, which began on the first day of the new school year.
