What really happened in Beslan
The UK’s Sunday Mirror has a very graphic and upsetting article (I don’t exaggerate in saying this really is a very tough read): They knifed babies, they raped girls — School Slaughter: 323 dead, 434 hurt. Over 200 people are missing.
This attack was planned well ahead of time
Two parts of the library’s wooden floor had been pried up, evidently by the heavily armed attackers who seized the school last week and held more than 1,100 hostages for 52 hours.
Beneath the boards, investigators now suspect, the attackers had secreted a cache of weapons or other equipment weeks and perhaps months before their attack – possibly during a seemingly innocuous summer renovation, officials said.
