Gangland on the Moscow

The Chechens are fighting again, not with the Russians but each other. As hard as it is to believe, people will still kill to control what's left of Chechnya.

Today's victim was Ruslan Yamadayev, the former rebel commander who switched sides in the Second Chechen War. Yamadayev "was shot to death Wednesday night while waiting in his car at a traffic light near the British Embassy." According to reports a gunman "approached his car in the evening rush hour traffic on the Smolenskaya embankment and shot him several times in the chest."

Not that Yamadayev's death reads suspiciously close to the hit on Sonny Corleone in The Godfather, but this business will only invite retribution. More Chechen-related hilarity is sure to follow.

In case you're interested, links to the scene (nothing you haven't seen in an PG-13 movie, but probably a bit too harsh with your morning coffee): here and here.
