Moscow bomb

While in the US, people struggle with all the potential swarth-fired terrorism lurking in the dark corners of American synapses, Moscow dealt with a reality-based bombing on Monday. The motivation is apparently yet again right-wing racism.
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.
