Moscow theater hostage crisis, part 2:
After learning that terrorists had taken hostages inside the theater, Olga Romanova crossed through the police barriers surrounding the scene and managed to make her way into the building.
Once inside, her goal was to negotiate with the terrorists inside, hoping that they would release at some (if not all) of the 850 people being held hostage.
The terrorists were immediately suspicious of her and deemed her Russian spy. Soon after her entrance, she was executed.
Thus, Olga Romanova became the first victim of the theater hostage crisis.
