Chechen Ex-Official Shot Dead in Moscow

You know, it might be more efficient to start listing everyday which Chechens haven't yet been shot dead. Just a thought, not a sermon.

NY Times: A former deputy mayor of Chechnya’s capital, Grozny, was shot and killed in Moscow early Thursday morning in the latest of several recent murders linked to the turbulent southern Russian republic. The body of the man, Gilani Shepiyev, was found around 1 a.m. outside his apartment building in western Moscow with three gunshot wounds to the head, the prosecutor general’s investigative wing said in a statement. Investigators said the murder appeared to be a contract killing.

Another thought: is contract killing the most stable job people can find during the global economic crisis? There seems to be more than a demand in Russia.
