    VLADIKAVKAZ, June 30 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Prosecutor General's Office has video tapes showing gunmen's preparations for terrorist attacks, including the fall 2002 theater siege in Moscow.

    Nikolai Shepel, the deputy prosecutor general, said an arms cache discovered on June 22 in Ingushetia (North Caucasus) also contained an archive that is thought to have belonged to Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev.

    Shepel said prosecutors had authentic videocassettes showing preparations for several terrorist attacks.

    "We have tapes showing attacks on government buildings in December 2002 and preparations for the theater siege. The tapes show other facilities in Moscow, such as airports," said Shepel.
