Leading Moscow judge gunned down

A leading judge from Moscow’s city court has been shot dead at his apartment building in the Russian capital, court officials have said.

Eduard Chuvashov was shot by unknown gunmen who fled the scene, police told the Ria Novosti news agency.

He had presided over several cases involving nationalist organisations and had received many death threats.

In February, he sentenced nine members of a neo-Nazi skinhead group called the White Wolves to up to 23 years in jail.
