Two killed in fights at Moscow's largest cemetery -reports | Reuters

MOSCOW Two people were killed and 10 injured in a mass brawl at Moscow's largest cemetery on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported, in what police said could be a dispute over jobs there.

Some of about 200 people involved used firearms during the brawl at the Khovanskoye cemetery in southwest Moscow, the RIA news agency said, citing local police. Fifty of them were detained after officers intervened to disperse the fighting crowds.

According to the police version, fighting broke out during conflicts between ethnic groups from ex-Soviet Central Asia competing for some of the cemetery's lucrative services business.
