THE full horror of the Russian school atrocity began to emerge yesterday as traumatised children told horrific tales of stabbed babies and brutal rapes.
It has also emerged that scores of the 323 who died - including many children - had been shot in the back.
While despairing soldiers and rescue workers moved among the growing pile of body bags, it was revealed that an 18-month-old baby had been repeatedly stabbed by a black-clad terrorist who had run out of ammunition.
Other survivors told how screaming teenage girls were dragged into rooms adjoining the gymnasium where they were being held and raped by their Chechen captors who chillingly made a video film of their appalling exploits
They said children were forced to drink their own urine and eat the petals off the flowers they had brought their teachers after nearly three days without food or water in the stifling hot gym.
Their stories came as Russian officials warned that the final death toll of the siege of Middle School No 1 at Beslan in North Ossetia - in which up to 1,200 people were held captive - was likely to be more than 400.
The official toll yesterday stood at 323 which included 156 children, 10 Russian soldiers and two emergency service workers - 35 of the hostage-takers were also killed. Last night 434 people were being treated in hospital with 247 children and 85 adults in a critical condition.
A Russian official said six seriously injured children had been taken to Moscow for treatment.
"One of them is a child, just 18 months old, with many knife wounds," he said.

I am holding my 18 month old daughter.
We will have minute by minute reports of Clinton's open heart surgery and this story will get nil on media.
Religion of Peace alert.
It just gets worse. God have mercy on us.
This story was posted yesterday. Is it true or urban myth?
I am a mother, too. I agree.
How is our intellectually dishonest MSM going to ignore this???
What do Muslims believe in? It sounds like the first rule is that any non=believer must be killed and treated like garbage first.
With the greatest of ease.
These are the monsters that John Kerry wants to fight a more sensitive war with. My sympathies and prayers go out to these people.
The media needs to cover this story more, maybe drop a bit of the Scott Peterson drivel and show the heartless, unbelievable reality of "terror".
Ditto. This is beyond barbaric.
someone said this on another thread:
The Sum of all Fears.
coming soon to a town near you...
time to arm all schools...
I don't care what the Russians do in Chechnya at this point. Whatever it takes, pacify it.
There's apparently no limit to the heights that humans can reach nor depths to which they can sink.
They sent that video out for Putin to view early on in the seige. I posted about it yesterday.
Knowing the chechens, the rapes were probably done just to make a movie for Putin.
