Hundreds gather to remember Parliament siege victims
It's 15 years since the constitutional crisis almost led to civil war.
Around 150 people died, including civilians as well as servicemen. Many died during clashes with police and when the Ostankino TV centre was stormed.
The conflict ended when the then Parliament building, the White House, was shelled by tanks by forces loyal to the president. That forced the legislators who had impeached president Boris Yeltsin to surrender.
The events changed the political face of Russia – a new constitution adopted after the crisis gave the Russian president increased powers.
