  The Religion of Nerve Gassing Children
MIPT Terrorism Knowledge Base: "More than 35 people, most of them children, in the Russian republic of Chechnya have been hospitalized with illness that preliminary diagnosis indicates could be nerve-gas poisoning, officials said Tuesday.

The ill include pupils, teachers and workers at a middle school in the town of Starogladovskaya, according to Vladimir Gerasin, a spokesman for the Ministry of Emergency Situations' office for southern Russia.

The first illnesses, including breathing trouble and headaches were reported Friday and as of Tuesday emergency officials said 36 people including 25 children had been affected. Preliminary investigation points to an unspecified kind of nerve gas, said Gerasin and officials of the Chechen administration.

Separatist rebels that have been fighting Russian forces in Chechnya for most of the past decade have committed a series of terrorist attacks in Chechnya and other parts of Russia, including the 2004 seizure of a school in the town of Beslan. That hostage-taking ended in the deaths of 331 people."
