Russia: Carnage ensues in anti-migrant riot

Police surveyed the damage Sunday following an attack by a large group of people on a Moscow market area popular with migrants.

The violence was sparked after a local man was allegedly stabbed to death on Thursday by a man from the Northern Caucasus. The rioters attacked the Turquoise Mall in Biryulevo West, before moving towards a vegetable warehouse believed to be owned by migrants, including Caucasus natives.

Riot police began operation 'Volcano' after being put on high alert in a bid to curb the riots on Sunday afternoon, but many residents continued to overturn vehicles on the street, smash windows, tip over garbage bins and throw rocks at police officers.

At least 380 people have been detained by police.
