I was put in mind of the anniversary by this link in the London Independent:
Russians mark 5 years since Beslan school tragedy - Europe, World - The Independent
Mostly we mark anniversaries to prevent recurrence and for many these days will be difficult, the fact that
the short link alludes briefly to the ongoing violence in the Northern Caucausus has been published on this site by
other members thus I decided to link to Anna Politkovskya, her murder, her role in the sieges as a negotiator
and the ongoing murder trial which has been called a farce by members of her family and close friends.
