Catholic World News - September 03, 2014
Ten years after Islamic militants took over a school in the Russian town of Beslan, Pope Francis has written a letter to the town’s residents.
The hostage crisis ended when Russian troops stormed the building. Over 300 hostages died.
The contents of the letter are not known at present, according to Vatican Radio.
