150+ killed, 227 children sent to hospital. The separatists were saying yesterday that for every one of their comrades that die at the hands of Russians, they'll kill fifty children. Apparently, they're estimating around 1200 were held hostage at one point. Russian soldiers stormedthe school in what was (according to Russian security services) an assault without any sort of plan, resulting in the deaths of many and the wounding of over five hundred. Damn. PS: No political talk here about why these chechen rebels are doing this, y'all can use PMs and the lounge for that.
