In pictures: War in Chechnya
Theatre siege

Chechen rebels have also carried out atrocities.

They took hundreds of hostages in two attacks on Russian towns in 1995 and 1996.

In 2002, they seized an entire theatre in Moscow. Russian forces laid siege, and finally stormed the theatre after pumping it with an opium-based gas. More than 100 people died.
