MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) —— A Russian emergencies ministry’s airplane has arrived in the North Caucasian republic of North Ossetia to evacuate a policeman who was wounded in a recent terrorist act, a ministry spokesman told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“An Ilyushin-76 plane equipped with a special medical module landed at the Beslan airport at 22:10 Moscow time,” the spokesman said. Onboard the plane, there are five medics from the Centrospas rescuer team who will accompany the wounded man during the flight.
