The violence happen was very brutal. I don't know how many of the rebels have been caught or otherwise stopped. In cases like this fighting fire with fire is perhaps the only effective way to protect the lives of the people there. I do hope the rest of the small scale attacks by the rebels that are left will stop, and I wish life and happiness for all those in Chechnya.
