Apparently there are still two main groups of attackers loose, one group in a house away from teh school and one group in an outbuilding on school grounds. The FSB troops are in the midst of surrounding them. Rumours are that the attackers escaped with hostages, but there has been reports of weapons being fired, including small arms, explosives, and even a report of cannon fire from a tank. The security in this situation was awful. Apparently there was no solid area of security around the school, parents and other civilians are mixing with the troops around the area, even during the assault. This led to the escape to the surrounding area of many attackers. A reporter just said that a mob of civilians had just captured a couple attackers dressed in the clothing of hostages, somewhere in the town. It was nearly a lynching, but police interuppted the mob and took the suspect into custody.
