In the news here in Norway they have reported from 10 and up to 150 deaths, so it's impossible to know what's true..

I guess we'll find out in a couple of days....

1 hostage explained how storm started, its because the terrorists had had granedes hangin in the roof, one grenade fell and exploded and then those people began to rush out of there because the roof was falling down..

ITV had a reporter on awhile ago, he had apparently been in the school and stated there were around 100 bodies in the gym. How factual this is, I do not know - it is still unconfirmed, despite what the reporter said.

According to Norwegian news 79 dead have been identified now, but there can be 100+ more according to some reports.
As many as 650 (250 children) wounded have been transported to hospitals...

All terrorists (about 40) have been killed or captured according to russian news.
20 dead, amongst them 10 arabs.
But a Norwegian reporter at the school has just reported more gunfire now, so it's impossible to know what's going on..

There could have been as many as 1,200 hostages at the school, and about 70% of them were children..


It's a great tragedy, regardless of what the true numbers of killed and wounded are.

Unfortunatly I fear that a number of civilians may have taken to arms and been involved in the fight, that's probobly the reason for the larger casulties emerging.

according to BBC, 100 hostages dead, 10 terrorists dead, the terrorists had bombs planted up on the roof and they detonated them causing the roof to collapse.

Russia currently has 80,000 soldiers in Chechnya.
