Two people have been killed in a mass brawl between rival gangs of gravediggers at a Moscow cemetery.

Up to 500 people are believed to have taken part in the fight at the Khovanskoye cemetery in the south-western suburbs of the city.

    Are the opportunities for grave-robbing part of the disagreement?

    Media are spinning it as if it were an attack by local thugs against migrant workers.
    However, it turns out to be Chechens and Dagestanis versus Uzbeks and Tajiks.
    i.e. all concerned are in the Religion of Peace.
