In 2004, 30 Islamic terrorists, mostly Ingush and Chechen, took over 1100 people hostage (including 777 children) inside a Beslan School. Their intent was to negotiate the removal of Russian soldiers from their native country of Chechnya. Similarly to the American governments policy, Russia doesn’t negotiate with terrorists. After fifty hours of stalemate, an explosion erupted into a battle that resulted in the death of 330 hostages, 186 of which were children.
