A suspect in Nemtsov murder blows himself up in Grozny

A suspect in the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov blew himself up with a grenade when police tried to detain him in an apartment in Grozny, Chechnya Saturday night, a police officer told Interfax. Another of the six suspects, Zaur Dadayev, is reported to have confessed to involvement in the killing.
The Russian investigation into the Nemtsov murder is looking at Chechen radical Muslims, who may have been motivated by the slain leader’s reference to the Mohammed cartoons in Western media.
