St. Petersburg Prosecutors Charge Three With Hate Crimes

Prosecutors in St. Petersburg, Russia have charged three men with hate crimes, according to a September 1, 2008 report by the Jewish.ru web site. The suspects, all in their early 20s, allegedly went out hunting for minorities in April 2008 and attacked two citizens of Mongolia while screaming racist abuse.

One of the suspects reportedly displayed a swastika tattoo during the attack. Later that day, prosecutors charge, the men attacked a citizen of the Ivory Coast.

Investigators have already obtained a partial confession from the suspects.
