Russia Identifies Beslan Hostage Takers

Ten of the terrorists who committed mass-murder in Beslan have been identified by Russian security forces. AP: Six came from Chechnya, where insurgents have been battling Kremlin forces for five years. The other four came from Ingushetia, a republic neighboring Chechnya that saw brazen coordinated attacks against police in June. Other reports suggest that at least nine more are Arabs.
