Maskhadov: May he rott in Hell.

MOSCOW (AFP) - Chechen separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov, one of Russia's most wanted men, has been killed in Chechnya, according to Russian news agencies who quoted Russian federal forces in the northern Caucasus.


Maskhadov has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks against Russian forces in the region and has been blamed by Russia for involvement in many other attacks on non-military targets including the Beslan school hostage massacre last September and a mass hostage-taking at a Moscow theater in 2002.

Maskhadov's death, if true, would mean Russia nabbed their Bin Laden.
