Russia failed to prevent Beslan school massacre – European Court

The European Court of Human Rights in a decision on the Beslan massacre of 13-years ago declared that Russia failed to take the necessary measures to prevent the assault on the school in 2004, which left 330 people dead, including 186 children. The Court also criticised Russia on the way it conducted the investigation in connection with the case.

The massacre occurred when Chechen separatists attacked the school and held one thousand people hostages, many of them children. The assault ended when Russian security services forces intervened in the school to end the assault. However, many of those who survived the tragedy said that the troops used excessive force during their chaotic intervention. No Russian authorities had taken responsibility for the many victims in the tragedy.
