Latvian Jews Protest

RIGA, Latvia -- Jewish leaders asked Thursday for a criminal investigation of a monthly business magazine for a cover story, titled "Jews Rule the World," which lists several international companies that it says are disproportionately controlled by Jews and suggests the Holocaust was deserved retribution for a decision by German Jews to side with Britain and America during World War I.

Leaders of the 11,000-strong Jewish community filed a formal complaint asking prosecutors to determine whether the article in August's issue of "Kapitals" was guilty of inciting ethnic or racial hatred f a criminal offense under Latvian law.

Prosecutors have promised to look into the matter, spokeswoman Dzintra Subrovska said.
