Luxury Cars Torched

Two cars were torched by Molotov cocktail-wielding arsonists Wednesday night, the latest in a summer-long streak of attacks on luxury vehicles in the capital.

The Maserati Quattroporte and BMW 5 Series, both parked, were seriously damaged in the attack, which took place in a guarded parking lot on Lesinovskaya Ulitsa in south-central Moscow, Interfax reported Thursday.

The cars were unoccupied at the time.

In June, 10 luxury cars were attacked with homemade bombs, bricks and screws, and a bomb was detonated near a traffic police post on the Moscow Ring Road. A local anarchist group took credit for the latter attack, reported.

The strikes continued in July, when five cars were vandalized in east Moscow.
