Thousands Russian nationalists protest against Muslims

Thousands of Russian nationalists marched in Moscow on Monday in an annual show of anger against the presence of Muslim migrants, news agency STT reported quoting AFP and Reuters.
Police detained around 30 marchers for wearing masks or forbidden Nazi symbols, and for other minor public order offences.
The nationalist march was joined by an estimated 8,000-10,000 people. The so-called "Russian March" is held every year on the day of new Unity Day holiday.
Many ordinary Russians are deeply hostile to immigrants from the largely Muslim regions of Central Asia and the Caucasus, blaming them for problems such as crime and unemployment.
Opposition leader Alexei Navalnyi expressed his support for the march, but did not participate in it.
A riot broke out three weeks ago over a stabbing murder blamed on a citizen of Azerbaijan who was a Muslim migrant worker.
