>What or who is Beslan?

It's the town in Russia where Chechen rebels took hundreds of school 
children hostage on the first day of school.  Here's what Wikipedia says 
about it:

"According to official data, 344 civilians were killed, at least 172 of them 
children, and hundreds more wounded. The equal number of family tombs and 
the greater number of death certificates suggests that the real number of 
killed is 3 times higher."
