Tens of thousands have been killed and hundreds of thousands of Chechens displaced in the course of years of fighting with Russian military and security forces. In 2002, Chehen terrorists seized the House of Culture theater in Moscow and took approximately 850 people hostage. Thirty-nine of the attackers are killed, along with at least 129 hostages.
