U S State Dept Condemns Attack on Mormons August 20th

WASHINGTON, DC -- The US State Department yesterday condemned an attack on a Mormon group in Volgograd August 20th as well as recent attacks on Jews and Jehovah's witnesses and called on the Russian government to prosecute the perpetrators "to the fullest extent" of the law.

"We call on the Russian government to conduct full and thorough investigations of these incidents on an urgent basis. Those responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under Russian law," said the statement released yesterday.

The attack on the Mormons happened in Volgograd (formerly known as Stalingrad) where extremists disrupted two separate gatherings of Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, beating worshippers and threatening two American LDS missionaries, according to the US State Department.
