On the news now they're saying that the infants were naked because the weather's very hot and it was even more unbearable inside the gym where the hostages are being held, so the mothers took the clothes off their kids. The reason why the special forces guys, not mothers, were carrying most of the kids out is because many of the mothers are still inside as hostages - many of the mothers were there with both their younger and older kids.

There are allegedly four or five Armenian nationals inside, and maybe a few Turks; there are demonstrations in Chechnya and Ingushetia - people there are demanding the release of the hostages; the terrorists refuse to take medicines, food and water for the hostages; the population of Beslan is about 30,000 - everyone outside knows someone inside.

This is so unbearably heartbreaking.
