Two Deaths on National Unity Day

The AP is reporting that amongst the arrests and scuffles with police of Russian ultra-nationalists marching on National Unity Day, two Central Asia men were killed and another two were injured in hate-related assaults. A staffer from the the embassy of Turkmenistan was apparently hospitalized after dozens of skinhead youths attacked him outside of the consulate. Pretty ugly stuff. If these extremist groups continue targeting embassies and consulates, an international incident is just waiting to happen.
