10 people, including five Chinese nationals and one Vietnamese, were killed in an attack on a Moscow market Monday, Russian officials said on Tuesday. Prosecutors said the two young suspects could belong to a racist group, Russian NTV television reported Tuesday morning.
The suspects are students at a Moscow university, a source at the prosecutor’s office told the RIA-Novosti news agency. The source went on to say that the young men had manufactured explosive devices themselves with the intent to blow up a multi-ethnic crowd of vendors at the market. At first both denied their alleged involvement but then agreed to testify.
