Gazeta Wyborcza 26/20/2002 issue By Waclaw Radziwiniwicz in Moscow The tragedy of hostages captured by the terrorists on the Moscow's theater hasn't ended yet. People who were freed when the special forces stormed the building in the morning are dying in hospitals from gas poisoning used by the storming troops. Vladimir Vasilyev, the vice minister of the Interior Ministry confirmed during the press conference that "special means and substances" were used. Officially the number of hostages who got killed as the result of operation is 68 persons right now. Nobody says how many people have died from terrorists' bullets, who according to the Russian sources begun executing the hostages. It's known that in the the City Hospital No 13, where around 350 freed hostages have landed, at least one woman had died. That's a official information. But, a hospital's worker, in the converasation to the Gazeta said that "we have many more corpses". Doctors confirm that the state of health of patients in the hospital No 13 is bad. Even worse is with people who have landed in the Wars Veteran Hospital, located nearby the theatre, in which hostages were kept. Here 9 persons have died, the state of health of 90 patients is critical. At Hospitals' gates crowds of hostages' relatives are gathering alarmed by information about gas poisoning. Their dispair is even bigger that nobody is giving any information in what state of health are their loved ones. There's no contacts with freed hostages who are laying in the hospitals.
