Pasternak's grave hit by vandals

The grave of Russian literary giant Boris Pasternak, author of Dr Zhivago, has been desecrated by vandals.

Wreaths taken from around the cemetery were set alight on top of the writer's gravestone, Russian TV reported.

Pasternak's daughter-in-law, Natalya, said she feared the monument, which features a sculpture of the writer, could be lost forever.
