Police charged over Beslan siege

Russia has charged three police officials with criminal negligence over the Beslan school siege in which more than 350 hostages died. Deputy police chiefs were charged in the North Ossetia region, where Beslan is located, and adjacent Ingushetia, where some hostage-takers came from. A prosecutor said an inquiry into officials’ poor performance is ongoing. A BBC correspondent says the charges are the first to be brought in what is likely to be a lengthy investigation. Two police chiefs who are the direct bosses of the three men will be charged when they come out of hospital, where they are apparently being treated for complaints not linked to the siege.Full Story
