Kaspiisk Honors Dead

KASPIISK, Dagestan -- Dagestanis on Thursday commemorated the 10th anniversary of an apartment building blast that killed 70, including 20 children.

Officials said the blast could have been staged by Chechen rebels or caviar smugglers angry over a crackdown, but the perpetrators have never been found.

Eldar Ragimov, who witnessed the rescue operation, said he still shudders as he recalls seeing a woman who lost her husband and all three children in the blast. "She was weeping ... and saying, 'How shall I live?'" he said.
