North Korean workers attacked near Moscow
11:25 | 11/ 12/ 2007
MOSCOW, December 11 (RIA Novosti) - A group of North Korean workers were attacked by local residents in Volokolamsk, in the Moscow Region, a police spokesman said on Tuesday.
Up to 30 local residents armed with baseball bats attacked the trailers housing the workers on Tuesday. As a result of the assault, four of the Koreans were hospitalized with injuries.
A total of four locals were subsequently detained by police in connection with the attack.
There are some 10,000 North Korean workers in Russia. The majority of them are employed in the country's Far East, where they are closely monitored by North Korean security agents.
Routine attacks by skinheads and young gangs on foreigners and people with non-Slavic features have been reported across Russia in recent years. However, authorities have been generally reluctant to treat the attacks as race-hate crimes, portraying them instead as acts of hooliganism.
“There are some 10,000 North Korean workers in Russia. “
Russia must be running out of people to expose to radiation.
Just buildin’ the nukes the locals won’t build?.....
Sounds just like the Euroweenies when Islamists do race-hate crimes against their hosts.
More like working in a logging camp, in really remote Tundra of Siberia.True dat, I read an article a while back talking about how NK'ers working abroad was undermining Kimmy Il's cult of personality. The workers realized "you mean everybody doesn't worship Kimmy, like we were told?".
Baseball in Russia??? Who’d da thunk it?
This (racist attacks) is supposed to be increasing in Russia. Increasing economic prosperity doesn’t seem to be going hand in hand with internal peace.
