Protesters in Moscow held anti-Semitic and anti-Western signs in a demonstration against what they believe to be the sinking last month of a Russian submarine by the United States. “Death to American Fascism” and “No to Jewish Zionism” were among the posters held by the demonstrators at the rally outside the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Russia has said the submarine Kursk sank Aug. 12 after a collision with another vessel, but other experts say it probably sank after an explosion from a defective torpedo.
