Boy Set on Fire

MOSCOW (MT) — A 10-year-old Armenian boy was set on fire in an
apparent skinhead attack in the northern city of Kostroma this week,
a news agency reported.

A group of teenagers splashed gasoline over the boy when he left a
grocery store with an 11-year-old friend and set him on fire, reported. Passersby quickly doused the fire.

The boy was hospitalized with burns to his face and hands, the report
said, without elaborating.

No suspects have been arrested.
