[JURIST] Chechen rebel leader Khozh-Akhmed Nukhayev ordered the murder of American journalist Paul Klebnikov [Wikipedia profile] according to a report released Thursday by the Russian Prosecutor General's Office. Klebnikov, editor of the Russian edition of Forbes, was shot to death in Moscow last July [JURIST report]. He had written a book in which he referred to Nukhayev as a criminal, a remark that caused Nukhayev to order the hit in retaliation. Nukhayev and two others involved in the murder are currently being sought by law enforcement officials. AFP has more.
