Russia's Reputed Top Criminal Killed

Charles Clover at the Financial Times reports on the death of a man reputed to be Russia's top criminal.

The man reputed to be Russia’s top criminal boss was shot to death by a sniper in broad daylight in the centre of Moscow on Wednesday, in what law enforcement officials said was a dispute with a rival Georgian gang.

Aslan Usoyan who went by the nickname “Grandpa Hasan”, was leaving a restaurant called Carriage House when an assassin opened fire with a rifle from a stairwell of a building across the street. Usoyan was hit with a single shot to the head. A few minutes later he died at the same hospital where his life was saved after he was shot in a similar attack in 2010.
