Russian Muslim Leader Shot Dead

(Kazan, Tatarstan)
One Russian Muslim leader has been shot dead and another wounded, in separate attacks in the Russian republic of Tatarstan, officials say.

The Mufti of Tatarstan, Ildus Fayzov, was injured when his car was blown up as he left a radio station in the city of Kazan.

A former deputy mufti, Valiulla Yakupov, was shot dead near his home at about the same time.
Reportedly, both men were known for their fierce opposition to Muslim extremism and radical Islamist groups.
