The Assassination: Part 3

Despite the BBC report to the contrary, according to today's issue of "7 Days":
A former Russian army commander from Chechnya shot in Dubai is “dead and buried”, a Russian senator said yesterday, after uncertainty over whether he had been killed.

Ziad Spassibi who represents Chechnya in Russia’s upper house of parliament said: “He was buried on Monday in the Al Quoz cemetery in Dubai.“This information is from official channels in the United Arab Emirates,” he added. Sulim Yamadayev, a bitter foe of Chechen leader Ramzam Kadyrov, was shot in a car park on Saturday.

Radio Free Europe's webpage reports:
Russian Consul Sergei Krasnogor said relatives confirmed that the dead man was Yamadayev, a prominent foe of Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov. Krasnogor later stressed to RFE/RL's Russian Service that he had seen neither the corpse nor any identification but was quoting relatives of the victim who attested to his identity.
