Nord-Ost

Commemoration ceremony for the 20th anniversary of the Nord-Ost hostage siege held in Moscow

People attended the commemoration ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the Nord-Ost musical hostage siege near the Dubrovka Theatre in Moscow. Twenty years after Chechen separatists seized a crowded theatre in Moscow, beginning a hostage stand-off that ended with more than one hundred dead, the survivors are haunted by the memories and plagued by unanswered questions.
