Russian colonel who killed Chechen girl is shot dead

A Russian colonel who was jailed for murdering a Chechen teenager has been shot dead in central Moscow.
Yuri Budanov was killed on Friday by unidentified people on Komsomolsky Prospekt, a busy avenue in the capital, an investigator said.
In 2003 a court upheld his 10-year jail sentence for strangling an 18-year-old girl in war-torn Chechnya in 2000.
But he was released early from jail in January 2009 - a move that angered human rights activists.
