What began as a peaceful protest over an unsolved killing became Moscow's worst anti-migrant unrest in three years. Local residents turned out earlier in the day to demand more police action over last week's stabbing of a 25-year-old man they blame on a migrant. As more swelled the ranks to several thousands the protest erupted into racist chanting, rioting and clashes with police. Some stormed a vegetable warehouse which employs workers from the Caucasus and Central Asia.
