MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow is commemorating victims of Dubrovka Theatre tragedy. Ten years ago, in the evening October 23, 2002, as many as 40 terrorists stormed the Dubrovka Theatre and took hostage 912 participants and spectators of the “Nord-Ost” musical, including women and children. Early in the morning of October 26, most of the hostages were released as a result of a special operation. The tragedy claimed the lives of 130 hostages.
A requiem service is held for the victims of the tragedy. After the liturgy in memory of victims candles will be lit on the steps at the entrance to the theatre and 130 white balloons will be launched into the sky around the memorial plaque near the theatre in memory of 130 people who were killed during the hostage crisis. The mourning events will be attended by relatives and friends of those killed and injured in this and also in other terrorist attacks.
