A leading Moscow university on Thursday ordered its foreign students to remain in their dormitories for the next three days because of fears of ethnic violence ahead of Adolph Hitler's birthday this weekend, students said. Foreign students at the prestigious Sechenov Moscow Medical Academy were instructed to stock up on food and other products and warned they would not be let out of the dormitories through Saturday, when ultranationalist groups celebrate Hitler's birthday, often leading to violent beatings of ethnic minorities.
