Another Beslan averted

It seems Islamic terror hasn't quite caught on that indiscriminate killing is bad PR.

Then again, it's not like they ever really cared. An infidel is an infidel.

From Deutche Welle

"With the discovery of explosives in a theater in St. Petersburg, Russian authorities may have averted another Beslan-like disaster. Meanwhile, Russia's foreign minister criticized western governments.

A week after the hostage crisis at a school in the southern Russian town of Beslan claimed more than 300 lives, authorities discovered a cache of explosives on Thursday at a theater undergoing renovations in St. Petersburg, Russia's second-largest city.

As news of the discovery sent ripples through a tense Russian society, authorities announced that they had identified 10 of the terrorists involved in the Beslan hostage-taking, and Russia's foreign minister criticized western governments for offering asylum to Chechen separatist leaders."
