Two women dressed in Muslim clothing were attacked and beaten in Moscow after the terrorist acts in the subway, eyewitnesses said. There is no official confirmation to this information: an eyewitness of the incident said that there were no police officers nearby at the moment.
Two women wearing headscarves got on a train at the Avtozavodskaya station. One of the passengers in the carriage attacked the women after the train started moving. The man literally kicked the two women out when the train stopped at the next station. Other passengers did not show any reaction to what was happening in the carriage, Interfax reports.
A similar incident took place at another subway station, in a different part of the city. A group young Muslim-looking men entered a train at the Kuntsevskaya station. Several Slavic-looking male passengers in the carriage asked them to open their bags. The men started fighting, and they were all arrested after the train stopped at the next station.
Thirty-eight people were killed in the terrorist acts in the Moscow metro today, about 100 were injured.
