The successful operation by the Russian Special Forces resulted in 750 hostages being freed, while unfortunately 118 died, most due to inhalation of a sleeping gas. 646 hostages are hospitalised, 180 of whom are on the critical list.
All the terrorists, 32 men and 18 women, are reported dead. Many refugees are being treated in hospital, showing signs of poisoning from the gas used by the special forces, who reacted when the terrorists started to kill the hostages.
