MOSCOW, October 13 (Itar-Tass) - A crowd of people protesting over the murder of a young man in the Biryulyovo Zapodnoe district in southern Moscow blamed on migrant workers, moves towards a local vegetable warehouse where a lot of migrants work, Tass reports from the site.
People are moving from a shopping centre, earlier stormed by a group of young men, overturning on their way Gazel minibuses and smashing windows. Riot policemen have tried to prevent them from going there, but people try to get to the warehouse through neighborhood yards.
The warehouse is guarded by police. The situation in the district remains tense.
Earlier on Sunday, local residents staged a rally demanding the dismissal of the district head, Viktor Legavin, following the murder of Yegor Shcherbakov, 25.
He was stabbed to death on Thursday night in a quarrel over a girl. The rally also demanded the closure of a local vegetable warehouse where a lot of migrant workers work, as local residents believe some of them may have been involved in the murder.
