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.

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.
