Russia: racist student murder


Samba Lamsar was shot as he and his friends left a night club in the centre of Russia’s second-largest city.

It is the latest in a wave of recent attacks in the city on foreigners and members of ethnic minorities.

A nine-year-old girl of mixed Russian and Malian parentage was seriously injured in a stabbing in March.

Last week, a teenager was acquitted of stabbing a nine-year-old Tajik girl to death in 2004.
