Dutch Diplomat Beaten in Moscow

If they could just sit down and talk it out…diplomatically. The Netherlands and Russia have been under serious diplomatic strain lately, ever since Russia seized a Dutch-registered Greenpeace ship. Then a Russian diplomat said he was beaten by police at The Hague. And now a Dutch diplomat has been beaten by two men in Moscow. His assailants left behind a drawing of a pink heart containing the letters for "LGBT." Activists in Russia have seized on the attack as further evidence of Russia’s intensifying animosity towards gays.
