Hostage Crisis in Moscow

500 people are still being held hostage in a Moscow threatre. The hostage is more than 20 hours old. One hostage is confirmed to be killed by the rebels. One police officer has also been killed.

BBC reports that 200 people mainly women, children, foreigners and Muslims has been released.

I hope & pray that all the people held hostage safely come out of this.

The latest from Moscow:

"Chechen gunmen holding hundreds of hostages in a Moscow theater fired grenades at two women who escaped from their captors on Thursday, wounding one of them, Itar-Tass news agency said. "

Chechens

Thank you guys.What's happening at the moment feels like a nightmare,and, being Russian, I'm touched to see there're people here in the U2 forum who care and pray.
There're still about 700 hostages inside the theatre,a lot of teenagers among them - Chechen gunmen won't release them as they don't see 13-16 years old as "chidren".
Though it's not really about them being Chechens.Terrorists don't
have a nationality no matter where they come from.
I know this may sound corny but I'm so sick of turning the TV on and hearing about all this terrorism and war and blood again and
again and again.
Will this ever stop?
Silly question,I know.

Thanks again for your concern.

this is so awful, i dont know what the latest is but lets just pray it is over peacefully.

more and more nations are being touched by large scale tragedy from the hands of terrorists. I hope Russia isnt one of them. Those people have done nothing more than go to the theatre...

Normal

They released 6 children I think, and 2 Russian adults, and nothing more. I don't really know but it doesn't look like hostage negotiations are going well. I can't imagine how those people are psychologically standing up in there. Apparently the whole place is wired, even some hostages have had explosives strapped to them.

They need our prayers.

It showed on TV a piece of footage of some hostages in a room, with a woman chechnyan terrorist (I tink this is correct) holding a device (strapped to her body was it?) and playfully fiddling with the activator wire..................in front of the handful of hostages.

my mum says

and shook her head................


the above may not be 100 per cent but close.....I just saw it fleetingly this mornin.

Exactly. Put them into prison until the rats chew their asses. Just like all the other terrorists.

Really, if this is about extremist shit again, I start to have serious problems with avoiding to accuse the religion. Sure, they are all terrorists and cant speak on behalf of "true muslim" or whatever, but destroying the statues of Buddha, creating 09/11 with all its consequences on all the world, planning terrorist attacks in Europe, blowing up Bali - which was a very beautiful place, I had the luck to visit 15 years ago - and now threatening people who wanted to visit a musical! All totally without style. I am disgusted by the responsible actors of those actions.

I start to ask myself if combined action from American and European intelligence and special antiterror groups would be useful at this point. I think maybe it would be more useful than large scale war. We have to wipe out terrorism! Not to concentrate on potential dangers of the future (even if I admit, after long discussions with STING2, we or UNO maybe must take care of that too) but on imminent danger!

While all of this talk talk talk goes on and on and on, countless people are in fear - - not that fear would be banned without terrorism - anyway, Ill send another prayer... love to Aine...

I have a feeling it was either taken offline, or is being bombarded by users (probably the former.) It worked for me yesterday.

It was a Chechen based website that had direct communication with those inside. It was giving a timeline that was going on. Very scary stuff.

Yes, these people are terrorists, but they are also willing to die for something that I do not think the Russian government is willing to give them right now.

This whole thing is going to end in a very very ugly way.

Pray there are not going to be too many casualties as they have said they would start kiling hostages tomorrow at 6AM.
