Christmas Eve, 7:50 pm, St Petersburg - a group of youths ages 16-20 attacked three African students. Mvangi Eddi Mayna from Kenya was stabbed twice in the back with a knife, but he managed to run away, and made it to the safety of the nearby campus. Nekongo Fedelis from Namibia, 25 years of age, ran away without getting hurt at all. However, his 25 year old friend Kanhem Leon from Cameroon was stabbed in the neck, and after severe artery bleeding he died before the ambulance showed up.
Not a single foreign student went to church that Christmas night, so that foreign students from the entire city could gather for a large spontaneous demonstration. Nearly all police departments and city officials met at the crime scene and talked to the students. However, many students are not satisfied with the work that Russian police are not doing. This murder follows many other attacks based on racial hatred, which have become very popular among uneducated Russian youth in the past few years.
