Grandparents of Boris Dzhibilov, 9, who was killed in Russia's school hostage crisis, cry at their grandson's gravestone at a cemetery in Beslan on Saturday. Thousands of residents of the small town gathered for the first anniversary of one of the country's deadliest terrorist attacks. Mourners again bid a wrenching farewell to hundreds of adults and children who perished in the hellish storm of gunfire and explosions after enduring nearly three days of thirst, hunger and terror at Beslan's School No. 1.
