Police detain Izhevsk vandal


Police have detained a suspect in the desecration of a Jewish center in Izhevsk, Russia.

On the evening of Nov. 9, the suspect allegedly spray painted “Death to the Kikes,” on the walls of the city’s community center.

According to a report on the Web site Jewish.ru, the 19-year-old suspect confessed to the crime after being shown video surveillance footage taken of him at the scene. Izhevsk is a major manufacturing city in the western Urals region, perhaps most famous as the birthplace of the Kalashnikov assault rifle.
