A video of two men fighting has been viewed tens of thousands of times in Facebook, Twitter and YouTube posts claiming it shows a fight between a Chechen man and a Russian police officer who insulted Islam. The claim is false; the video circulated in news reports about a fight between a man and the security guard of a café in the Moscow region. Russian police officers heard in the video do not mention Islam.
