MOSCOW (AP) — Police in Russia’s capital say they have detained 1,200 Vietnamese who are in the country illegally during a pre-dawn raid on a complex of small workshops.
A statement from the Interior Ministry said the Wednesday operation found workers and their families living in unsanitary conditions. The statement did not say if they would be deported.
The detentions follow a series of sweeps of Moscow markets where hundreds of people were detained on suspicion of being in the country illegally.
Those raids followed a weekend clash at a Moscow market in which a crowd attacked police who were trying to arrest a suspected sex offender. One policeman suffered a fractured skull.
Police say the raids are aimed at stifling crime in Moscow’s markets, where many workers are migrants.
