Suspected anti-Semitic hate crime as unknown individuals throw Molotov cocktails at a Jewish centre in the Russian capital.
Security camera footage released last week showed unknown assailants hurling Molotov cocktails over a metal fence at the Jewish Community Federation in Moscow. There were no reported injuries, but there was damage to the outside of the building.
A Molotov cocktail is a bottle with a flammable liquid inside, often petrol or strong alcohol, which is set alight using cloth and thrown to cause an explosive fire.
Jewish Federation’s Foreign Relations Manager Boris Gorin later told Russian news agency RIA that the remains of two Molotov cocktails were found in the building.
