Moscow Russia.October 27, 2002..Family members cover their relatives who were former hostages held by Chechen banidts for three days in a theater in Moscow. As they are released they make their way from the hospital to their cars outside Hospital 13. ..After a siege of two and a half days, Russian OSNAZ raided the building after pumping a mysterious chemical agent into the building's ventilation system. All of the terrorists were killed by Russian forces, along with at least 129 of the hostages. There were conceivably more than 200 civilian deaths.
