(Reuters) - Demonstrators, some chanting racist slogans, vandalized a shopping center and scuffled with police in a Moscow neighborhood on Sunday after the killing of a young man that residents blamed on a migrant from the Caucasus.
Protests over the death in the southern Biryulyovo district began peacefully until a group of young men began smashing windows in the shopping center.
The crowd grew to number several thousand and demonstrators scuffled with police when they tried to make arrests, a Reuters witness said. Pictures showed at least one policeman with minor injuries and video footage showed a car and rubbish bins overturned in the streets.
Later the crowd moved from the shopping center and overran a vegetable warehouse where, according to residents, many migrants from the Caucasus and Central Asia are employed.
A video posted on Youtube showed several men chanting "White Power!" and "Russia forward!" as they were forcing their way into the shopping center. Interfax news agency quoted Moscow police as saying around 200 people were detained.
The protesters began with demands for more action from law enforcement officials after an unidentified assailant fatally stabbed the 25-year-old man who was walking home with his girlfriend on Thursday night.
Russia's top investigative agency said it was looking into the killing.

Those darned Caucasians.
I just watched a report on RT. They are now saying that the murderer was from Central Asia.
Somehow you just know that Muslims were involved.
My Russian wife (born and raised in Central Russa) was highly offended when she had to fill out a government form here in the U.S. and check “Caucasian” for race! To ethnic Russians, Caucasian has a whole different meaning than white or anglo. Russians hate caucasians and look at them as being subhuman.
Who posted the picture of the Collective Mooning? A hundred derrieres in your face!
