Man arrested in Moscow over murder of Yuri Budanov

A Chechen man has been arrested in Moscow over the murder of Yuri Budanov, the former Russian colonel jailed for a notorious murder in Chechnya.

Magomed Suleymanov, 41, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated murder and illegal possession of a weapon, a court spokeswoman told Russian media.

Budanov's killing by a gunman in Moscow on 10 June shocked Russia.

He had left prison two years earlier after serving most of his sentence for the murder of a Chechen teenager.
