Anti-LGBT assault on Dutch diplomat in Moscow strains relationship

Dutch officials are demanding an investigation after the beating of a senior diplomat in his Moscow apartment. Two men forced their way into the apartment of Onno Elderenbosch, the Netherlands’ deputy ambassador to Russia, and attacked him.

The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday tried to head off any political fallout from the attack on Mr. Elderenbosch, deploring the episode and promising to take steps to detain the two attackers, who remained unidentified as of Wednesday evening. Russian law enforcement officials said a criminal investigation into the attacks had been opened.
