Moscow synagogue firebombed
A synagogue in Moscow was attacked with firebombs.
Four men wearing masks threw Molotov cocktails at the Darchei Shalom synagogue in northeast Moscow on Tuesday morning, Interfax reported. None of the bombs exploded and no one was injured.
Unnamed officials told news services that the attack could be revenge for the conviction Monday of five neo-Nazis on charges of murdering 27 people, mainly dark-skinned migrant workers.
