E9: The Moscow Theater Hostage Crisis Pt. 2: Rescue Rehearsal

Unable to leave the auditorium of the Dubrovka Theater for over four days, the orchestra pit becomes the bathroom. After a mysterious woman sneaks into the theatre, and confronts terrorist leader Movsar Barayev, she is dragged into the lobby and shot. Despite immense pressure to open talks, Putin insists everyone will get out alive, without recalling troops from Chechnya. The Russian Government reacted to terrorist leader Movsar Barayev’s demands, only after a rescue mission conducted by the Russian Spetsnaz turns deadly.
