Russia Begins Burying Its Dead from School Seizure - 2004-09-05


Families of the hundreds of people killed at a school hostage crisis in southern Russia have begun burying their dead.

Russian authorities say 260 people are still unaccounted for in the attack in Beslan that has already claimed 338 lives. Many of the dead were children.

Officials say more than 400 people remain hospitalized.

The seizure of the school came to a bloody end Friday.

Officials say Russian forces stormed the building where more than 1,000 people were being held after militants detonated explosives and starting shooting at fleeing hostages.

President Vladimir Putin says the hostage seizure was part of an all-out war against Russia by international terrorists. He declared Monday and Tuesday national days of mourning.

Authorities say more than 30 militants took control of the school Wednesday, and most of them were killed. Officials said today three people have been arrested on suspicion of being accomplices in the attack.
