Shooting Dogs

The Moscow Times has some interesting coverage of the Ossetia disaster this morning. Apparently, when the terrorists seized the school the other day, they killed a few people who are now rotting away in the courtyard of the school. Apparently a pack of dogs is in there eating on the bodies, and the Russian police wanted to shoot the dogs, but was afraid of scaring the terrorists. So they did a deal to pick up the bodies. When they arrived to get the bodies, some hostages saw them and thought it was a rescue. They ran out, terrorists shot them, the cops picking up bodies returned fire, other terrorists started fighting, the crowd returned fire (apparently a number of the parents brought their own weapons). Needless to say, a big fricking mess.]]>
