Two dead and 10 wounded in mass brawl between rival gangs of grave diggers in a Moscow cemetery

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.

The victims died when they were run over by cars as people fled the violence amid reports of gunshots.

    However, it turns out to be Chechens and Dagestanis versus Uzbeks and Tajiks.
