MOSCOW, September 6 (RIA Novosti) - Law enforcement bodies will launch a new investigation into the work conducted by firefighters during the Beslan school hostage-taking tragedy last September, a Russian senator said Tuesday.

Alexander Torshin, the chairman of a parliamentary commission investigating the terrorist attack, told Moscow's Ekho Moskvy radio station: "The Russian Prosecutor General's office has annulled a decision against opening criminal proceedings against firefighters in Beslan. A new investigation will be launched."

Torshin said firefighters arrived on the scene of the tragedy late. "We have to investigate this. I understand everything and am not reproaching anyway. We are all human but it looks like we have to deal with the so-called human factor," he said.

At the same time, Torshin asked rhetorically: "Who would want to fight a fire under heavy gunfire?"
