On Tuesday, the three-day Watch in memory of the victims of Beslan ended, according to Ossetia News. Hundreds of people brought flowers, water, soft toys, and lit candles to the ruined school. By tradition, in the courtyard of the school at 13:05 sounded two bells. It was at this time in 2004 that explosions thundered in the gym.

After the bell, a poem was performed by the poet Shamil Dzhikayev, and schoolchildren released 334 white balloons into the sky - according to the number of victims of the terrorist attack.

From the temple in the courtyard of the former school to the "Tree of Sorrow", a cross procession was held with photographs of the dead.

Mourning events continued at the City of Angels memorial complex. To the knock of a metronome, the names and surnames of everyone perished during the attack were read out, after which Beslan schoolchildren released white balloons into the sky.

In 2004, during a festive lineup on September 1, a group of terrorists captured the first Beslan school. For three days they held 1128 people hostage. The bandits, killed 334 people, 186 of which were children.

Actions of memory were held in the capital of South Ossetia, in many cities of Russia, in some European countries.
