State forces blamed over Beslan

Beslan remains dominated by grief
Russian security forces were partly to blame for last year's school hostage crisis in Beslan, investigators from the North Caucasus have concluded.

The hostage-taking raid by pro-Chechen gunmen led to the deaths of 331 people.

The North Ossetian parliament commission said the school had been seized because of "failings in the law enforcement bodies".

Many relatives blame their children's deaths on a botched rescue operation, in which fire engulfed the school.

The head of the commission, Stanislav Kesayev, said the identified "failings" included "the fact that a large number of armed people gained access to a major rail and air hub like Beslan without being noticed".

The commission said the findings should lead to "organisational" consequences.

Heavy weapons

The report, quoted by the Interfax news agency, concluded that grenade launchers, flamethrowers and tank fire were used during the storming of the school.

But it is not clear from the news report whether investigators believe the children were still in the school at the time, the BBC's Emma Simpson says.

Earlier this year Russia's prosecutor general admitted such equipment had been used, but only after all the children had left the school.

For weeks after the siege Russian officials had denied the use of flamethrowers.

Some of the bereaved parents say flamethrowers were used while hostages were still in the school.

The report released on Tuesday said the various security forces involved at the scene had given contradictory information about their actions.

Eight parliamentary deputies who witnessed the school siege were on the commission, Mr Kesayev said.

A separate investigating team overseen by Russian deputy prosecutor-general Nikolai Shepel has been given until 1 March to deliver its findings.

Your title misleadingly states "State forces blamed for Beslan" despite the fact that the article does not actually make this claim. But lets not get into semantics. You know what you were doing.

And this is exactly the type of insane, apologistic attitude, typical of many in the Muslim community, which destroys any sympathy or legitimacy for arguments about injustice to Muslims.

The blame lay in the evil, wicked people who KIDNAPPED CHILDREN, refused to give them water, left them to sit in their own urine in unbearable heat, and then rigged the school with explosives.

I'm sure that Chechens have suffered great pain in the hands of Russians and are justifiably bitter. I'm sure that the Russian forces were incompetent.

But the BLAME lies with the filthy scum who KIDNAPPED, ABUSED AND MURDERED CHILDREN!

How can you, as a human being ever forget that?

What type of God do you believe in, that you cannot accept that whatever the circumstances, there are lines that cannot be crossed.

Get a grip on reality. Never apologise for those animals!
