"Hostile move"

It looks like the Chechens were right. Qatar has arrested two "Russian intelligence agents" and charged them with the death of Zelimkhan Yanderbiyev, former President of Chechnya. Yanderbiyev was killed in Qatar by a bomb.

Two Russian intelligence agents have been charged in Qatar with the murder of Chechen rebel figure Zelimkhan Yanderbiyev, local officials say.

The men were detained five days after Mr Yanderbiyev, wanted by Moscow for terror offences, was killed by a car bomb in the Gulf state's capital Doha.

Three Russians were initially detained but the third has been since released.

Confirming that the detainees are anti-terrorism agents, Russia condemned the arrests as a "hostile move".
