Remembering Beslan

Towns and cities across Russia have united in grief on the anniversary of the tragic end of the Beslan school siege in 2004.

The terrorist attack, the worst on Russian soil, took the lives of 334 hostages – including 186 children – after a three-day siege at the school.

The violent conclusion came on Sep. 3, and the date will be marked with mourning ceremonies in Beslan itself and cities from Novgorod in the north west to Khabarovsk in the far east.
