This is the headline:
But let’s look at the article.
A Putin critic has been found with his throat slit in what police are calling a “politically motivated” assassination in a French hotel.
Imran Aliev, 44, was found lying on the ground with “multiple wounds” in his chest and his throat slit with a bloodied knife next to it.
Aliev has been a strong critic of Vladimir Putin and Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov on his popular blog and youtube accounts for years, working under the pseudonyms of Mansur Stariy or Old Mansur.
His is the latest death to spark concerns of a Russian political hit squad running amok in Europe to hunt down any anti-establishment voices in hiding.
Aliev’s 35-year-old Chechen travelling companion disappeared shortly after the shocking murder that was discovered by the hotel manager on January 30 after they failed to check out.
The pair had travelled from Mr Aliev’s home in Belgium where he was under police protection, to Lille, France, via train on January 29 where they booked into the Coq Hardi Hotel.
The day before his death, he told his wife and four children that he was leaving for a day in France “on business” after an unknown man showed up from Chechnya on the eve of the incident.
Who do you think is more likely to kill this guy: Vladimir Putin or the other Moslems he was attacking?
You get two guesses and the first one doesn’t count.
