China To Offer Treatment To Beslan Survivors

The agreement was reached during Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov's visit to Beijing yesterday.

The Chinese Health Ministry says Beijing will send doctors to Russia and will also invite some of the child survivors to China for free recuperative treatment.

More than 330 people -- most of them children -- died in the school siege in North Ossetia in September 2004.
