The Beslan attack took place on September 3 , 2004. The attack was in Beslan, Russia and killed 366 and injured 747 civilians. This attack is one of the worst attacks on Russian soil ever recorded. The attackers forced their way into a school , the attackers took hostages. The attack killed 156 children and injured 337 more.
The attack took place in a school. The attackers took over 1,000 hostages and killed many of them after they tried to escape. The attackers deliberately took small children as they knew they wouldn’t fight back. The terrorist took teachers as well as parents as they were in the school celebrating the first day of school . The hostages were taken to the gymnasium , the attackers then rigged the gym with explosives.
The hostages were not given water or food of any sort. The Russian special forces moved into the school and tried to enter the gym when the explosives went off. This killed many civilians and others were killed by fire. The attackers shot down any survivors, some civilians survived with shot wounds or burns. The Russian forces killed most of the attackers but one , the man fled the school and was later captured by the special forces.
This attack was a ambush on the school and was inevitable as there was no way to avoid it . The school was taken over by hostages and lasted two days with no food or water . I think this attack shows that terrorism is a big thing in the world and has to be stopped. This attack was targeting small children shows how messed up people in the world can be . This attack killed many people and injured even more , the attack affected people all around the world.
