Russian Special forces ended the three day takeover by Chechen rebels on Saturday when they pumped gas into the building. The gas was supposed to knock out the hostage takers as well as their captives--so the soldiers could take control. Instead the fumes turned out to be deadly. More than 115 people were killed.

Doctors are still treating the hundreds of hostages who made it out. The Chechen rebels burst into the theater during a performance on
Wednesday. With explosives on their backs and threatening to blow up the building they demanded Russia pull its troops from Chechnya.
Today President Vladimir Vladimir Putin vowed to fight terrorism wherever they originate. Speaking on television he said--Russia will make no deals with terrorists and will not give in to any blackmail."
While Russians try to come to terms with this tragedy, government officials say the victims families will receive compensation for their loved ones--100 thousand rubles--that's about 31-hundred dollars. Drew Levinson, CBS News.))

Harland Braun, who's been defending him on murder charges, has decided to quit.

Braun says he met with Blake and told him he was against the idea. But he says Blake insists on going ahead.
Braun says it's ''insane'' for the actor to answer questions on camera.
Blake is accused of murdering his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, last year outside a restaurant.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled in December.
