MOSCOW, May 19 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian parliamentary commission investigating the 2004 Beslan school massacre will present its final report to the State Duma by the end of the lower house's spring session, the commission's deputy head said Friday.
Following repeated delays to the report's release, Valery Dyatlenko said: "The report is almost ready. All draft amendments have been processed - more than a thousand."
Hundreds were taken hostage at school No. 1 in Beslan in the North Caucasus region of North Ossetia on September 1, 2004, the start of the new academic year. A total of 331 people died in the atrocity, including 186 children.
