Nationalists call for 'white power'
MOSCOW - About 5,000 nationalists turned out for the Russian March, held for the third year on National Unity Day Sunday.
Preston Wiginton, 43, a white supremacist from Texas, addressed a rally in Moscow.
"Glory to Russia," he said in broken Russian, as the crowd of mostly young Russian men raised their right hands in a Nazi salute and chanted "white power!" in English.
More than 50 people have been killed and 400 injured in ethnically motivated attacks this year, the Sova rights center says.
Moratorium urged against Romanians
ROME - Opposition leader Silvio Berlusconi urged Italy to close its borders to Romanian workers as lawmakers prepared to debate the government's response to recent crime, including fast-track expulsions of Romanians and other EU citizens deemed dangerous.
Berlusconi told La Stampa newspaper that Italy should enact a moratorium against Romanian workers.
"If I were in the government, I would have done it," the former premier said.
