Police Precinct Torched

Unidentified assailants have torched a police precinct on Ulitsa Presnensky Val in central Moscow by tossing a Molotov cocktail into the building shortly after midnight, RIA-Novosti reported Tuesday.

No one was injured in the incident, but the fire, which was put out in 20 minutes, damaged the building’s interior and office equipment.

Police have opened an investigation.
