Russia recalls Nord-Ost drama

October 24th marks six years since the 2002 Nord-Ost terrorist siege. About 50 armed Chechen rebels stormed a Moscow theater taking up some 700 people hostage.
      The second act of the musical "Nord Ost" was just beginning at the Moscow Ball-Bearing lant's Palace of Culture when an armed man walked on stage and fired a machine gun into the air. The audience thought at first that the people with guns were a part of the show. The terrorists, a number of women with explosives strapped to their bodies among them, said they were members of the Chechen Army.
      The terrorist act lasted for 56 hours. The terrorists demanded the Russian government should withdraw its troops from Chechnya, otherwise the hostages would be killed. Russian OSNAZ forces pumped an unknown gas into the building's ventilation system, and raided it. 39 terrorists and 129 hostages were killed.
