Blogger sentenced for posting neo-Nazi murder on Net

A Russian student found guilty of circulating a neo-Nazi video on the Internet has been sentenced to one year's hard labour.

The 24-year-old, who was detained in August, admitted posting the video, which he claims he received in an e-mail.
A court in the Republic of Adygeya in southern Russian convicted him of inciting racial, religious and national hatred.
The video showed the apparent murder of a Tajik and a Dagestani by Russian neo-Nazis.

The violent scenes circulated on the web for 18 hours.
Investigators have yet to verify if the video is genuine.
