This is from a headline in one of the Russian online papers. Refers to the "Nord-Ost" theater hostage crisis in Moscow some two years ago.
Severnaya Osetiya... North Osetia... Nord-Osetia... Nord-Ost...
Very creative. I envy people who are able to come up with puns and stuff when something as horrible happens. I would give the guy a Pulitzer for this headline.
Some sources say there are 400 hostages being held in that school - kids, parents, teachers - and some say there are 150-200... Some say 15 kids have managed to escape, others say 50.
