Five years on: Remembering Beslan


Beslan is preparing to mark the fifth anniversary of the school siege tragedy which saw more than 1000 hostages taken - 334 people including 186 children died.

Chechen militants took control of the school in North Ossetia for three days before Russian forces stormed the building.

Ewa Ewart directed the documentary Children of Beslan in the months immediately after the attack. She returned to see the children five years on.
