Moscow police detain arson suspects

Police have detained two teenagers from Russia's western city of Kaliningrad. They're suspected of setting cars on fire in North Butovo, a region in the south-west of Moscow. Eleven cars were damaged, including five which were almost reduced to ashes.

Thursday was a night of mad burnings in the area as a group of youngsters went on an orgy of car and house burning in the south-west of the capital.

During the night vandals carried out arsons in two neighbouring apartment blocks.

A number of expensive cars suffered the worst damage. No injuries were reported.
