MOSCOW, October 1 (Itar-Tass) - The number of foreign students, who were detained for an incident at the Nigerian Embassy in central Moscow, rose to 17 people, the press service of the Moscow police told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
It was reported earlier on Tuesday that 16 people were detained and they are about to be brought to justice for an administrative offence.
The incident occurred at about 21:00 Moscow time (17:00 GMT) on September 30 at the Nigerian embassy in Mamonovsky Bystreet, central Moscow. A group of foreign students have broken the furniture at the conference hall of the embassy during an inquiry in the failure to pay the scholarships to them. “The police have detained 17 students of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. These people are about to be brought to administrative responsibility for violating the public order,” the press service reported.
The university was asked to confirm that the detained students study at this higher educational establishment, the police press service said.
