New extrajudicial execution in Chechnya

Via the BBC:

The head of a Russian charity and her husband have been found dead in Chechnya a day after their abduction, activists and officials said.

The bodies of Zarema Sadulayeva and her husband were found with gunshot wounds in a car boot near the Chechen capital Grozny, the interior ministry said.

Armed men seized the two on Monday from the offices of Ms Sadulayeva’s charity, Let’s Save the Generation.

The case follows July’s abduction and killing of activist Natalia Estemirova.

Ms Sadulayeva and her husband Alek Djabrailov were in their mid-20s and had just got married, reports say.

Their bodies were found in the boot of Mr Djabrailov’s car in the Chernorechye suburb of Grozny early on Tuesday, an official at the Chechen prosecutor’s office said.

The official, quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency, said the armed kidnappers had been wearing camouflage uniforms.
