Fifteen years after Beslan, terror attack survivors tell their stories. For the rescuers too, time has taken its toll. At Moscow's Arkhangelsk military cemetery, the section where officers involved in the Beslan siege are buried is filling up.

Two men , one armed with a knife and the other with a skewer, carried out the attack in Villeurbanne, a Lyon suburb, in southeastern France, the official said, without giving further details on the motive for the stabbing. One of the men had been arrested by police but the second was on the run.

Coláiste Chríost Rí in Turner's Cross on the southside of the city were forced to evacuate after gardaí arrived shortly before lunchtime yesterday.

Principal Padraig Mac an Rí said that the event was "shocking" but that the pupils and staff had responded in "an excellent fashion" and the school was cleared quickly and safely, Cork Beo reports.

"Gardaí arrived at around ten minutes before one and told us that they had received a call about a man armed with a knife in the Turner's Cross area who could be in the school," said the principal.

"It was a pretty shocking bit of information to get but we have an incident plan and we put it into action immediately. They instructed us to evacuate the buildings and the staff and the students responded very quickly and very well.

"We have regular fire drills and a full incident plan and while this would not have been the ideal way to test them - in a strange way it was very reassuring to see them work so well. At least we know our systems work".

Gardaí conducted a thorough sweep of the school and the grounds as part of a wider search of the area but it seems the call had been a hoax.

"It was very intense hour for us, a bit of a shock on a normal lunchtime, but it was good to see the Gardaí carry out their duties very efficiently and it is reassuring for us to see how the staff and students responded and followed our plans," said school Principal Mac An Rí.

After two years of delays, Cork council to issue tender for dog rehoming service

After two years of delays, Cork council to issue tender for dog rehoming service Rehoming services for dogs are in Ireland are often run by charities, such as the ISPCA and Dogs Trust.

Russia reacted angrily last year after the council amended the original plaque and added others citing Konev’s lesser-known role in more notorious episodes – namely the suppression of the 1956 Hungarian uprising, the building of the Berlin Wall, and the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia that

It is understood that Gardaí will try to trace the source of the hoax call, which wasted their resources and caused unwanted stress for the staff and boys at Coláiste Chríost Rí.
