Unnerving video footage from the Russian school in Beslan, North Ossetia, seized by terrorists last week was shown on the country's NTV channel.

The dramatic footage gave a first-hand glimpse of the horror inside the school, with hundreds of people huddled in the gymnasium as masked gunmen strung up explosives.

NTV aired the video, which lasts a little over a minute, during its daily 10pm (1900 GMT) newscast on Wednesday, saying it had exclusive footage from inside the gymnasium.

The network did not, however, explain how it had obtained the video.

An image grabbed from NTV's telecast shows a gunman connecting wires as hostages sit in the gymnasium of the school.
