Reports are coming in that an explosion at a stadium has killed the Chechen president. Does anybody have any more news regarding this?

Foxnews is reporting that Russian media is reporting the president dead, CNN is reporting injured but no sources.

It looks like radical Islam has struck again  Pissed

Well done. Should have been killed a long time ago.

Just my opinion. I'm sure most of you won't agree.

That's probably not correct in this instance - sorry, what I mean is, although they may be Muslims, religion wasn't the motivation. The most likely perpetrators are rival Chechen militants, who oppose the Russian 'sponsored' government.

Much like the exiled Chechen ex-president who was assassinated in Qatar in February in a car bomb - he had been threatening to return to Chechnya to lead political opposition. Two Russians are current on trial for his murder.

Chechnya is a bloody mess now, and going to get worse following Putin's comment "Retribution is inevitable."

Amazing. I've been combing wire bulletins from correspondents in the Chechen region and reports directly from Russian media, none of which is even sure of basic facts such as whether the president is dead, and all this time the conclusive information I'm after was here on A.net... Big grin
