Fifty Children Poisoned in Chechnya by Unknown Gas
Local sources are reporting that in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, at least 50 school children and two teachers were poisoned by an unknown gas.
According to the information, during the afternoon of May 17, an unknown gas poisoned students between the ages of 8 and 15 years old in the school number 17 in Grozny. However, the effects of the unknown gas started to be seen in the evening, when many children started to complain of bitterness in their mouths, sore throats, headaches, abdominal pain, nausea, shortness of breath and a cough. The children were immediately taken to local hospitals by their parents.
Our correspondents have been informed that as of May 18, 50 children and 2 school teachers had been poisoned by the unknown gas. Local hospitals have already sent many of the patients home, claiming that their lives are not in danger and their conditions are stable.
So far, it has not been learned what type of gas was used against these innocent children in the school, but local people accuse the Russian invaders and claim that Russian authorities tested chemical products on their children. It is not first time that this is happening in Chechnya; there have been similar incidents before, especially between 2002 and 2007.
