KHANTY-MANSKIISK, April 29 (Itar-Tass) - A mass fight broke out near the branch of the Federal Migration Service in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area on Monday, in which several dozen migrants were involved, the press service of regional police told Itar-Tass.
"Five persons were detained on suspicion of masterminding mass disturbances. Police found a baseball bat in a car. At present, police are ascertaining the identity of the persons involved in the mass fight and the circumstances of the incident. No precise information about the injured is available yet," the press service said.
It is the second mass fight in the area in the past four weeks. Eye-witnesses said some 200 people were involved.
On April 13, reports said a large group of youngsters had gathered near a trade and entertainment center. Police who arrived at the scene heard several shots. One hundred and eighty people were detained and brought to police stations. Law-enforcement personnel confiscated from them non-lethal and air weapons, a smoothbore gun, a sawn-off gun, baseball bats, hammers, iron pipes and a pitchfork.
The crowd reportedly gathered because of a conflict between four men. Two criminal cases were opened over the April 13 mass disturbances.
