Russia: Basayev Might Have Been Killed by Daghestani Terrorists

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Religion, War & Conflict

Sean's Russia Blog continues to follow the story of Shamil Basayev's death and discusses a new theory [1] of what caused it: “[…] Basyaev’s death was possibly carried out by the Dagestani terrorist group Shariat. The theory is based on the fact that forensics now believes that a bomb was indeed planted in the car Basayev was traveling in. His “alleged body” […] had wires and shrapnel that are the signature of Shariat chief Rappani Khalilov. The bomb was far too crude to be the work of the FSB.”
