MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. Dozens of Muscovites are bringing flowers, candles and toys to the city's Dubrovka theater where 13 years ago almost 1,000 people — actors and audience at a performance of the musical Nord-Ost — were taken hostage by terrorists.
One-hundred-and-thirty died in the siege before other hostages were freed in a special security forces operation. To honour the memory of those killed in the attack, 130 white balloons were released in the sky in the morning.
On 23 October 2002, 40 terrorists broke into the theater and took 914 people hostage. Early in the morning of October 26, most hostages were freed.
The Nord-Ost siege was the Russian capital's largest-scale terrorist attack.
