((As many as 50 gunmen stormed the theater yesterday, and it's not known exactly when the woman was killed. But a Chechen rebel Web site says the woman was shot before dawn after she tried to enter the area where the hostages are being held.
The Qatar-based satellite T-V channel Al-Jazeera has broadcast statements by some of the gunmen. One man is quoted as saying, ``We are more keen on dying than you are keen on living.'' He says each of them is willing to sacrifice himself ``for the sake of God and the independence of Chechnya.''
Al-Jazeera did not explain how it obtained the video -- and it was not clear if it had been taken in the theater or before the raid began.

Outside the theater, family members have stood helpless. These men offered to trade places with the women and children inside.
It was Wednesday night when Chechen rebels stormed the theater where a popular musical was showing and took hundreds hostage. The rebels, including these veiled women, made their demands via Al Jazera television. They want Russian troops out of a wartorn Chechnya. They say unless that happens they will shoot the hostages or blow up the building.
