    RIGA, February 19 (RIA Novosti) - Latvian Interior Minister Mareks Seglins called the British "pigs" after another British national was arrested on Tuesday for urinating on a Riga monument.

    Police arrested a fifth British national caught urinating on the Freedom Monument, which is Latvia's national symbol, in central Riga.

    "These people think it is a tradition to defile our monument. They are pigs, those British. A piggy nation," Seglins angrily told reporters .

    Over 15 people, including Russians, have been arrested recently for indecent behavior at the monument. However, British nationals are the most frequent offenders.
