Topic: Two charged with Nemtsov killing include Chechen officer: report


By Katya Golubkova and Christian Lowe MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian authorities said on Sunday they were holding five men over the killing of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov, one of whom served in a police unit in the Russian region of Chechnya, according to a law enforcement official. A judge ruled that all five should be held in custody and said that one of them, Zaur Dadayev, had admitted his involvement in the killing when questioned by investigators. Dadayev served for a decade in the "Sever" police battalion, part of the interior ministry in Chechnya, Russian news agencies reported. Nemtsov was shot dead on the night of Feb. 27 within sight of the Kremlin walls, in the most high-profile killing of an opposition figure in the 15 years that President Vladimir Putin has been in office.
