Beslan Terrorists Planned More Attacks

From the trial of Nurpashi Kulayev, the only surviving Beslan terrorist:

According to Kulayev’s testimony which he confirmed in the courtroom, the militants, after the seizure of the school in the North Ossetian town of Beslan, were planning simultaneous attacks on three cites in the North Caucasus — Vladikavkaz, Nazran and Grozny – in November 2005.

The defendant said it follows from the talk of gang leader Khuchbarov, nicknamed “Colonel” which he had heard at a militants’ base, that they were planning to blast car bombs in these cities.

One such car bomb was ready, Kulayev said.

Terrorists planned to blast the buildings of special task force police in Vladikavkaz and Nazran and the military commandant’s office in Grozny.

Kulayev, 24, a resident of the village of Stary Engenoi in Chechnya’s Nozhai-Yurt district, is accused on eight counts under Russia’s Criminal Code, including murder, attempted murder of servicemen, terrorism and hostage-taking.

The trial of Kulayev in North Ossetia is continuing this week.
