Description: "05/22/2008: 20 armed men bearing metal batons, knives, and stones rampaged through a west-end cafe in a bloody attack in Edmonton, Alberta at 4:00 p.m. The attack left eight people badly beaten. The café also sustained significant damage. Café patrons claimed that the mob was composed of Turks, however no claim of responsibility was made for the incident. Investigators consider this to be a well-organized hate crime against Kurds by racist people."
