Hundreds Arrested in Moscow Following Riot Sparked By Murder Blamed on Migrant

Rioting blamed on "extremists"


Police in Russia have arrested at least 400 people after a protest against a murder blamed on a migrant from the North Caucasus turned violent.

The protest in southern Moscow was against the killing of a young ethnic Russian stabbed to death on Thursday.

Protesters stormed a shopping centre, smashing windows, and then overran a wholesale vegetable market searching for migrant workers.
