Neo-Nazis Attack Synagogue, Policeman’s House

Russian neo-Nazis attacked a Russian synagogue and the home of a police official who has been investigating terrorism. The attack on the home represents an escalation in violence on the part of the neo-Nazi movement, which targets Jewish, Christians, Muslims and foreigners.

Police arrested four youth, ages 15 to 21 for the firebombing of a Khabarovsk synagogue and the policeman’s house. One of the suspects is a former member of Russia’s special forces. Government officials said that “young people deliberately targeted the window of a room that was specifically set up for the education of small children.”
