Masked Men Storm Moscow Gay Bar

Police in Moscow are searching for two dozen men who donned masks and allegedly attacked one of the city's biggest gay bars on Thursday. Upon entering, the men reportedly shouted at the 50 people in the bar, "You asked for a fight? Now you'll get it." They then began to beat patrons, mostly women, with fists and bottles. One of the alleged attackers pulled a gun on the bartender, and another reportedly sprayed a caustic substance in the face of a patron, now hospitalized. Ten people reported injures, and four were hospitalized. The attack coincided with International Coming Out Day.
