In September 2004 Muslim terrorists stormed the grade school in Beslan, North Ossetia taking over 1,000 children and their parents hostage. Over 380 people, mostly children, died in the Islamist attack.

The Russian parliament passed a law this month requiring family members to pay for the damages caused by Islamic terrorist attacks.
