Uzbeks, Kyrgyz Clash

Three Kyrgyz and two Uzbek natives were briefly detained and an unidentified man was hospitalized with a stab wound after a mass brawl near the Profsoyuznaya metro station in southern Moscow, Interfax reported Tuesday, citing a law enforcement source.

Twenty to 40 people took part in the fight Monday, the report said, without specifying the cause of the incident.

Ethnic riots in Kyrgyzstan in June killed more than 300 people, mostly ethnic Uzbeks.
