File photo of a Russian police officer carrying a released baby from Beslan school
A Russian police officer carries a released baby from a school seized by heavily armed masked men and women in the town of Beslan in the province of North Ossetia near Chechnya, in this September 2, 2004 file photo.

Viktor Korotayev: The Beslan school siege took place on September 1, 2004 during a festive ceremony to launch the new academic year at school No.1. Pro-Chechen gunmen seized the school and took 1,300 hostages on the first day. Some 331 people were killed, half of them children.

On the second day of the siege, the captors were convinced to free several women with babies, so when a fighter of a special task unit was seen leaving the building with a child in his hands, there was hope that children could be saved.

I think that was why this photo was published on the front pages of numerous publications all over the world.

Throughout my career I've covered many difficult stories such as military conflicts in different countries, disasters, hostage situations. The Belsan tragedy remains the biggest psychological trauma I have experienced.

Vitaly Kaloyev (L), who was convicted of killing an air traffic controller linked to a 2002 mid-air collision, comforts a woman who lost a relative in the 2004 Beslan school siege at the cemetery in Beslan in southern Russia November 14, 2007. Kaloyev was released from jail and flew back to Russia on Monday. Kaloyev, who lost his wife and children in the crash, had expected to be set free after a Swiss court last week upheld a ruling to cut his sentence to five years and three months, of which he had already served two-thirds.
