And Another

From RIAN:
A student from Senegal has been shot to death in an apparently racially motivated killing in St. Petersburg, local law-enforcement officials said Friday.

The student, Samba Lanzar, was making his way home from a nightclub with a group of fellow African students when the group was fired upon on a street in the south of the city center, a representative of local student organization African Unity said.
According to, the murdered student was a member of the Nashi ("Ours") young people's organization, where he led a "Lessons of Friendship" program. He was also a member of the "African Unity" organization, which represents the interests of St Petersburg's African emigre community.

RFE/RL has a report here.
