Petersburg Gang Shoots Dead 10

Ten occupants of a van that collided with a car in the streets of St. Petersburg were gunned down when the occupants of the car turned machine guns on them, Itar-Tass reported Thursday.

The killers picked up the bodies in broad daylight and took them to a nearby forest where they doused them with petrol and burnt them, the news agency said.

A police investigation showed that killers and victims belonged to rival gangs, it added.
