Three Teenagers Suspected Of Moscow Murder


Soccer fans clash with riot police in central Moscow on December 11.
Russian investigators say that three teenagers, including a 14-year-old boy, are suspected of the murder of a Kyrgyz citizen in Moscow last weekend.

The Kyrgyz man was stabbed to death on December 12, just a day after some 5,000
ultranationalists joined soccer fans in a racist-tinged riot in central Moscow following the killing of a Spartak Moscow supporter in a brawl with men from Russia's North Caucasus.

Vladimir Markin, the spokesman for the Investigative Committee of the Prosecutor-General's Office, said today that "a 14-year-old has been arrested as a suspect" in the murder of the Kyrgyz man.

The arrest of the other two is currently being decided.
