Pune: A Special Investigation Team (SIT), constituted to investigate the Aurangabad riots, has arrested a local Shiv Sena leader and former corporator Laxminarayan Bakhriya alias Lachhu Pahelwan for his alleged role in instigating last week’s violence which left two people dead last week.Mr. Bakhriya was picked up from Aurangabad’s Diwan Devdi area late on Wednesday night, where he was due to meet a friend.SIT sources said there was strong evidence of the Sena activist leading one of the groups that participated in the riots as well as allegedly extorting money from vendors of the minority community, which in turn exacerbated the clashes.‘Chief instigator’His role in the riots had surfaced in the immediate aftermath of the violence, with a number of political parties including the Asaduddin Owaisi-led Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress pointing fingers at him for being the chief instigator of the violence and vandalism that raged through the night of May 11-12.In his tweet after the riots Mr. Owaisi had specifically called out Mr. Bakhriya and demanded an immediate probe against him. A case against the Sena leader has been registered at the City Chowk Police Station under Sections 435, 436 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to cause damage) and other relevant IPC sections pertaining to rioting. Known by his moniker ‘Lachhu Pahelwan’, Bakhriya was a former corporator disqualified from the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) in 2016 for allegedly attempting to murder the son of former Aurangabad deputy municipal commissioner, Ayub Khan.Other arrestsTwo corporators — one each from the Sena and AIMIM — have already been apprehended by the SIT for last week’s riots.Rajendra Janjal, leader of the house in the AMC, was arrested after a video surfaced which allegedly showed him indulging in vandalism, torching vehicles, and smashing shops. AIMIM corporator Feroz Khan was also arrested last week for allegedly instigating a mob. Both corporators been remanded to police custody till May 18.In all, 3,000 people have been booked for offences like arson, rioting and causing damage to public property.The riots, which allegedly began over illegal water connections, rapidly took on a communal colour and engulfed the old part of Aurangabad city claiming two lives — of a 17-year-old youth and a man in his 60s — and leaving more than 50 persons injured.“The police has arrested 50 persons in connection with the clashes and are interrogating them. We are also scrutinising the CCTV footage from various strife-torn points across the old part of the city and taking action based on them,” Rahul Shrirame, Deputy Commissioner of Police in Aurangabad.Opposition parties including the Congress and NCP have accused the city’s top police authorities of not doing enough to curb the violence and take preventive measures despite allegedly receiving warnings about the possibility of such clashes.

In the doubles, Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy, who In the doubles, Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy, who became the first Indian mens doubles pair to qualify for the Olympics, will lead the challenge. Besides them, Akshay Dewalkar, young R Satwik Sai Raj of Andhra Pradesh and Mumbais Chirag Shetty would complete the line-up. India has been clubbed in Group B alongwith Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong and though it seems like a relatively easy draw, the absence of top players will hurt Indias chances to progress to the knockout stage in what is only their eighth appearance in the prestigious event. “Srikanth and Prannoys absence will be a setback, but Sameer and Sai have had some encouraging results of late and hopefully we can step up to the task and get some good wins,” Jayaram told PTI. Indian men will open their campaign against Thailand tomorrow and then square off against Hong Kong and Indonesia on Tuesday and Wednesday. “We are definitely in a tough group and getting through to the quarters is going to be an uphill task. All 3 group stage ties will be crucial. However, I believe that if we can get off to a good start by getting the better of Thailand it will be good moral boost,” said Jayaram. “Its hard to pick out any particular match that we will rely on as it is a well balanced team and every member will play a crucial role in getting the team through.” Since its inception in 1948-49, the Thomas Cup has been won by only four nations: Malaya/Malaysia, Indonesia, China and Japan while the Indian team failed to reach the knockout stage till 2006. In 2006, it was the mens team which broke the jinx by reaching the quarterfinals. In 2010, India lost to Indonesia 0-3 in the quarterfinals. In the last edition, India could not go beyond the group stage. PTI ATK PDS ATKadvertisement

The Best Graphic Tee Companies to Liven Up Your Wardrobe Editors’ Recommendations Smart Practices for Drinking With the Environment in Mind We love the way Schnayderman’s envisage the shirt. In the eyes of the design team, the right shirt cannot only alter our attitude and ability, but can also change the world. After sounding them out, we couldn’t agree more.Established by a small circle of shirt lovers from Stockholm, Paris and New York in 2012, Schnayderman’s – English translation ‘tailor-man’ – set out from the start to reestablish the importance of handcrafted, beautifully designed shirts within our current fast fashion context. Since then, a selection of leisure shirts, formal shirts and Oxford shirts have formed the basis of each collection. The three contemporary cuts are constructed from traditionally fine fabrics, the mother of pearl buttons on each shirt feel completely timeless, and a classical colour palette that actually feels very ‘now’. Knowing how time poor we are today, the brand have mindfully kept each of the three cuts the same within each line, so once you find a fit that works, you can add new styles and colours to your wardrobe with the greatest ease. The way we would imagine James Bond would, or a morning after the night before Donald Draper.The brand’s understanding of the design that guys want today is abundantly clear from the AW13 collection. The Oxford Shirt, which the brand believes to be the cornerstone of the modern wardrobe, is offered in a whopping 17 variations for the season. The purity of the cut and expertly chosen ‘new neutral’ colourways define the all-purpose way we want to dress right now. It’s not about changing to go from work to the bar. It’s about one sufficiently sharp shirt that will take you from one to the other and beyond.The Schnayderman’s AW13 collection is available now at Opening Ceremony and Steven Alan.

Washington had launched an “immoral” attack to try and prevent Venezuela from being freely elected to the Security Council, President Chávez said. “It calls us extremists but they are extremists,” he said yesterday, adding that the “open attack” by the US had galvanized many other countries, both from Latin America and elsewhere, that were supporting Venezuela.To those supporters, he said: “I thank you all warmly on behalf of Venezuela, on behalf of our people, and on behalf of the truth. Because Venezuela with a seat on the Security Council will be expressing not only Venezuela’s thoughts, but it will also be the voice of all the peoples of the world.” President Chávez said that the US was doing all in its power to take over the world, but, if the world were to survive, it could not allow this “dictatorship” to succeed. The American president purported to promote democracy, but “what type of democracy do you impose with Marines and bombs?” President Chávez asked.“The devil came here yesterday,” he said, referring to US President George W. Bush, who had said he had come to speak to the peoples of the world. “Yankee imperialist, go home. I think that’s what people would say if they were given the microphone,” the Venezuelan President said.The US has already planned, financed and set in motion a coup in Venezuela and it continued to support coups in Venezuela and elsewhere, he said, recalling the murder of former Chilean Foreign Minister Orlando Letelier in Washington, DC, three decades ago. “Those who perpetrated this crime are free.”
by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 8, 2014 6:39 am MDT TSX up amid strong US jobs data; traders find few clues on speed of Fed tapering AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed slightly higher Wednesday as minutes from the latest Federal Reserve meeting shed little light on how fast the U.S. central bank will accelerate the winding up of a key stimulus program.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 17.7 points to 13,614.63 with lift coming primarily from miners and techs.The Canadian dollar continued to plumb multi-year depths, down 0.27 of a cent to 92.56 cents US, its lowest close since late October 2009.New York markets were mainly lower following the release of the minutes from the meeting last month when the Fed decided to start tapering its US$85 billion a month of bond purchases by $10 billion starting this month and said further decreases would depend on economic data.But traders had hoped there would be some clues as to the pace of further tapering and now the focus has shifted to Friday and the release of the government’s employment report for December.Expectations for a stronger than expected jobs report on Friday grew after payroll firm ADP reported Wednesday that the U.S. private sector created 238,000 jobs in December.The ADP data came out two days before the U.S. government releases its non-farm payrolls report and expectations have been that the U.S. economy cranked out about 195,000 jobs in December.The Dow Jones industrials lost 68.2 points to 16,462.74, the Nasdaq added 12.43 points to 4,165.61 and the S&P 500 index declined 0.39 of a point to 1,837.49.Meanwhile, the Fed minutes did nothing to dispel concerns that the U.S. central bank will exit its latest quantitative easing program well before the end of 2014.“(Tapering) is going to be data dependent but I think there’s a school of thought now that we will start to see that tapering of $10 billion, maybe $15 billion a month,” said Garey Aitken, chief investment officer at Franklin Bissett Investment Management.“So they’re not just going to go from $85 (billion) to $75 (billion) and leave it there — this is going to be a methodical wind-down of this so that by the third quarter we have completely stopped (the asset purchases).”The bond purchases have kept long-term rates low and encouraged investors to put their money in the stock market.TSX gains were paced by the base metals segment, up 0.74 per cent even as the March copper contract lost early gains and gave back two cents to US$3.34 a pound. Performance was mixed with HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) ahead 20 cents to C$8.81 while Teck Resources (TCK.B) declined 33 cents to $26.28.The tech sector was largely supportive, ahead 0.72 per cent as Open Text (TSX:OTC) rose $2.12 to $101.60.BlackBerry (TSX:BB) was up six cents to $9.20 on top of two days of solid gains. Wednesday’s advance came as Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. (TSX:FFH) said that it will double its investment in the smartphone maker’s debt with the purchase of an additional US$250 million in convertible debentures.Financials were also supportive with Manulife Financial ahead 50 cents to $21.35.The gold sector was the biggest drag, down about one per cent as the February gold bullion contract slipped $4.10 to US$1,225.50 an ounce. Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX) faded 30 cents to C$19.37 while Goldcorp (TSX:G) fell 25 cents to $23.87. The component was the worst performer on the TSX last year, losing almost 50 per cent, but it has been generally positive so far this year, up almost four per cent over the last week.Industrials also dragged, with Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) down 95 cents to $58.63. A CN train carrying liquefied petroleum gas and crude oil derailed in northwestern New Brunswick on Tuesday. A spokesman said initial indications are that 15 cars and one locomotive derailed from a train that consisted of 122 cars and four locomotives.The energy sector was off 0.28 per cent as the February crude oil contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange slid $1.34 to US$92.33 a barrel. Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO) fell 61 cents to C$45.97.In other corporate news, Monsanto reported better than expected first-quarter earnings on higher sales of the company’s insect-repelling and herbicide-resistant soybean seeds in Latin America. Despite an 8.6 per cent increase in profit, the company left its full-year fiscal guidance unchanged. Its shares shed early declines to advance $1.99 to US$115.23.
Freshman goalie Matt Tomkins blocks a shot during a game against Minnesota Duluth Nov. 2 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 4-2.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s ice hockey team (4-4-0) held on to an early lead and handed the No. 20 Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs a 4-2 loss.After the opening period Saturday, the Buckeyes led, 2-0, off goals from senior forward Alex Szczechura and sophomore forward Tyler Lundey.Although junior forward Max McCormick widened the gap with another Buckeye goal early, Duluth (4-3-1) made it a one-goal game by the end of the second period with goals from freshman forward Alex Iafallo and junior forward Caleb Herbert.The Buckeyes were the only team to score in the third period, with an unassisted empty-net goal by junior forward Ryan Dzingel with 33 seconds left in the game.Dzingel said Wednesday the games against Duluth were going to be fast-paced because the Minnesota team “likes to get up and down the ice.”Szczechura said the team managed to hold its own against the Bulldogs’ speed.“Our team as a whole can definitely handle a fast pace as a style of hockey we want to play, and tonight I think we played a good game — a very up-tempo game and very physical — and I think it helped us,” Szczechura said Saturday following the win.Junior forward Nick Oddo said sticking with the fundamentals of the game was what led to the Buckeyes’ victory.“Just keeping things simple,” Oddo said. “Coach (Steve Rohlik) always preaches to push the puck north, get it forward, chips, get pressure on their (defense), and I think doing those little things helped us.”Freshman Matt Tomkins played in the net for OSU for the full 60 minutes, saving a career-high 39 shots.The first game of the series was played Friday at the Schottenstein Center, where the Buckeyes fell to the Bulldogs, 3-1.“I can’t fault our effort,” Rohlik said. “We made mistakes, and the mistakes we made ended up in our net.”Despite losing Friday, Rohlik said it was one of the Buckeyes’ best performances so far this season.“To be honest with you, I think we probably played a more complete game (Friday),” Rohlik said Saturday. “I thought we played in spurts tonight, I thought we were very good early, but they kind of took over maybe in the middle there.”The Buckeyes, in the midst of a seven-game homestand, are slated to return to action Friday against Niagara at 7:05 p.m with the two-game series against the Purple Eagles concluding Saturday.

Windows 8 isn’t just about being able to play well with tablet devices. It’s also going to have integration with Xbox Live $59.00 at Dell , and that point is proven with the announcement of 40 Xbox games that will be available the day Windows 8 is released.On October 26, games like Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds, Dragon’s Lair, Kinectimals Unleashed, and many more will be available with the same kind of gaming experience that Xbox users have come to expect. That means they’ll have achievements, leaderboards, and the ability to play online with others.This is a very noteworthy symbol of Microsoft’s over-arching plan with all of its products and services. It used to be that you could own a Windows computer, a Windows-powered phone, and an Xbox system without ever even realizing that the software was all being powered by the same company. That’s no longer the case.As every company begins to have a stronger leverage of content on multiple distinct types of devices, this idea of cross-platform cohesion is becoming one of the biggest trends in the industry right now. It is believed that the next iteration of the Xbox will have an interface very similar to Windows 8, which itself will have a very similar interface to the new version of Windows Phone.All of that is just to underline why Xbox-branded games are coming to Windows 8. It isn’t just because that brand name carries a lot of weight, it’s because Microsoft wants you to realize that you don’t get the full potential of any of your devices unless they’re all powered by Microsoft software.Xbox Games on Windows 8

Avec l’accès à de multiples plateformes de VOD, les consommateurs privilégient ce mode de visionnage, plus économique et pratique que l’achat d’un support physique, DVD et maintenant Blu-Ray. La seule limitation provenait de la qualité des contenus, bien en deçà de l’excellence d’un Blu-Ray en Full HD.À lire aussiPourquoi le son de notre voix nous paraît-il si étrange sur un enregistrement ?Mais les technologies se perfectionnent et désormais, un film HD en streaming offre un compromis intéressant entre qualité et vitesse de téléchargement. Seul le son restait bien inférieur. Ce manque est aujourd’hui réparé avec l’annonce par Dolby, leader dans les solutions de spatialisation du son, de l’ajout du 7.1 dans les films en téléchargement, selon Übergizmo.Seulement 30 titres sont disponibles sur la plateforme VUDU, à titre d’expérimentation. Mais le catalogue est promis à s’étoffer rapidement. Parmi les films disponibles, notons la présence non négligeable du 4e volet des Pirates des Caraïbes.

Windows 8 : Microsoft présente ReFS, son nouveau système de fichiers Microsoft a développé un nouveau système de fichiers, ReFS (Resilient File System), qui sera intégré à son prochain OS, Windows 8, et succédera donc au NTFS. Dans un premier temps toutefois, ce nouveau système sera réservé à la version serveur du système d’exploitation.Microsoft distille au compte-goutte les informations concernant le développement de son très attendu Windows 8, dont la sortie est prévue cette année. Mais sur un blog dédié au futur OS, le géant de Redmond vient de dévoiler son nouveau système de fichiers. Le successeur du NTFS est baptisé ReFS, pour pour Resilient File System, littéralement “système de fichiers élastique”.À lire aussiMicrosoft : le brevet du “câlin connecté” déposé !ReFS reprend une partie du code source du NTFS, en raison des besoins de compatibilité avec les précédents systèmes d’exploitation de Microsoft. Aucun mécanisme de conversion NTFS -ReFS n’est prévu. Mais le système a été enrichi de nouvelles fonctionnalités, comme la détection et la gestion automatiques des données corrompues, qui passe notamment par le placement des métadonnées dans des zones différentes. Associé à la fonctionnalité Storage Spaces, le nouveau gestionnaire de volume logique de Windows 8, ReFS sera le socle du stockage sur Windows “pour la prochaine décennie ou plus” affirme le géant de Redmond.Dans la liste des avantages apportés par ce nouveau système de fichiers, Microsoft évoque en outre une meilleure gestion des volumes, des fichiers et des dossiers de grande taille, le nettoyage des disques en prévention des erreurs habituelles, ou encore le maintien d’un accès au système de fichiers permanent.Dans un premier temps, ReFS sera réservé à la version serveur de Windows 8. Il fera plus tard son apparition dans la version client de l’OS.Le 17 janvier 2012 à 21:00 • Maxime Lambert
It’s been a festive day in the northwest Arctic community of Kivalina today as residents celebrate the grand opening of a new store. It’s an end to eight months of struggle with limited supplies after Kivalina’s store burned to the ground December 5th.Download AudioKivalina’s new store, owned by ANICA, celebrated its opener with hot dogs and hamburgers for all. Photo: Janet Mitchell.Janet Mitchell is Kivalina’s city administrator. She says the village doesn’t have firefighting equipment so men cut a hole in the ice of the local lagoon and pumped water on the fire, mainly to keep it from spreading to nearby teacher housing. Mitchell says a temporary store was established but it was a very small space.“They ran out of things very quick and that posed a difficulty for young babies or young families, families that need formula.”Mitchell says eggs cost more than $8 a dozen and pilot bread was $7 because supplies were so limited. Mitchell says the temporary store was in a storage structure built in the early 1900s and mainly sold staples of eggs, flour and rice. Mitchell says Seattle-based Alaska Native Industries Cooperative Association, or ANICA, owns the store. The new store is two or three times bigger than the old structure, she says, and today company officials flew in for the grand opening, serving hamburgers and hot dogs to the community.Kivalina’s population of 468 has a high percentage of young people. Janet Mitchell says close to half are 18 or under and many of the young people don’t care for traditional foods. Subsistence resources are also harder to get in a changing climate. Mitchell says the ice went out in early June and with it went the subsistence mainstay, ugruk, or bearded seal.Hot dogs, hamburgers and other foods are popular with Kivalina’s younger residents. Photo: Janet Mitchell.“It’s our winter food. That we didn’t have an opportunity to hunt the bearded seal. So it’s going to be a very, very lean year in terms of Native foods.”Mitchell says her large extended family normally harvests between 15 and 20 large adult seals. This year they got one small seal. She says less than 20 have been harvested by the entire community and they haven’t seen many caribou either. She says even older Kivalina residents who normally rely heavily on subsistence hunting will have to include more western food in their diet.“The store is going to be very important to have if we don’t have the capability of hunting the foods we normally do, we’re gonna need the foods from the store.”Although she prefers Native food, Mitchell says she buys supplies at places like Costco when she can get to Anchorage.“But we have families that number up to 20 in one household so that can be quite a challenge to keep them fed, especially when they don’t hunt.”Mitchell says her community continues to fight development to protect subsistence food but the store will be increasingly important in the future.Kivalina welcomes the opening of a new store.

Nurul Islam NahidThe education ministry will request the Facebook authorities to halt operation of the social media during the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and the equivalent examinations, in order to stop question paper leaks.Education minister Nurul Islam Nahid said this at a press conference at the secretariat on Tuesday. The exams are scheduled to begin on 1 February.”We will request those who run Facebook to keep its operation for a limited time,” he said in reply to a query if the Facebook would be restricted from the beginning until the end of the exams.The minister pointed out that it would not be necessary to keep the Facebook on the days, other than the dates of examinations.”Packets of question papers would be opened only on the day of exams, not on other dates. The operation of the Facebook may remain suspended for a certain period (in order to stop leaks of question papers,” he said.The minister mentioned that his ministry had already talked to the information communication and technology (ICT) ministry and Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) for taking necessary measure.Plagued by repeated leaks of question papers of public examinations, the education ministry has now been “desperate” and “aggressive” in preventing the leaks, Nahid said.Terming the coaching centres the ‘dens’ of question paper leaks, the minister said the centres will be kept closed until the exams are held.The examinees will also have to enter the centres at least half an hour before the exam, he iterated.The minister said government officials will be kept at the centres to monitor if the packets of question papers are opened half an hour before the beginning of the exams.
Ebola vaccine trials are set to start in Switzerland this week after receiving the green light from the country’s authorities, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday.Swiss regulators announced they would allow trials of an experimental vaccine made by Britain’s GlaxoSmithKine, and tests on some 120 individuals were set to get under way at the CHUV hospital in Lausanne this week, the WHO said.‘This marks the latest step towards bringing safe and effective Ebola vaccines for testing and implementation as quickly as possible,’ the UN’s health agency said in a statement. There is no licensed treatment or vaccine for the deadly Ebola virus, which has killed nearly 5,000 people in the outbreak centred in west Africa.The experimental GSK vaccine is one of two considered particularly promising by WHO. Called ChAd3, it is based on a genetically modified chimpanzee adenovirus and trials have already begun in Mali, Britain and the United States, the WHO said.‘The trial will test the safety of the vaccine and its capacity to induce an immune response,’ it said.

The safe use of fluoroscopy has always been a primary concern for interventional radiologists,” said Michael S. Stecker, M.D., FSIR, an interventional radiologist and assistant professor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Mass. This radiation management guideline, tailored to interventional radiology practice, emphasizes the need for increased diligence to safely manage the risks of radiation exposure from such procedures as embolization (including chemoembolization for cancer); transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation for liver disease; and renal and/or visceral artery angioplasty and/or stent placement.The 376-page collection guest-edited by John F. Cardella, M.D., FSIR, includes quality improvement guidelines, safety guidelines new from 2003, consensus documents, credentialing statements, policy and position statements and technology assessment documents. One new feature added since the 2003 supplement is emerging technologies articles; these state-of-the-art works are written by thought leaders in emerging topics, such as nanotechnology, genetic therapy and digital detectors in computed tomography. Also included are position statements, defining not only SIR’s position on a new technique or procedure, but also the societal position on such topics as the role of clinical associates in interventional radiology. There are several such collaborative documents with like-minded societies, adding strength to the collection, said Nemcek. In the supplement’s introduction, Cardella and his collaborating colleagues, Sanjoy Kundu, M.D., FSIR; Donald L. Miller, M.D., FSIR; Steven F. Millward, M.D., FSIR; and David Sacks, M.D., FSIR, offer the hope that “….these documents help you in optimizing the quality of care for patients, assuring consistency and comparability in the publication of clinical and basic science research, establishing quality assurance programs with action thresholds and learn about ‘new topics on the horizon’ for interventional radiology.”For more information: www.jvir.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 A JVIR feature shows a C-arm computed tomography (CT) scan of the right inferior phrenic artery (RIPA) in transcatheter arterial chemoembolization of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Four benefits of having a wireless security system His wife, Evgenia, issued a statement Thursday saying he had symptoms of poisoning and called for him to be taken to Europe or Israel for treatment.But his father and the head doctor of the hospital said Friday he won’t be sent abroad, Russian news agencies reported.Litvinenko, a former officer of the Russian Federal Security Service, died in London in 2006 after ingesting the radioactive element polonium. He had fled to Britain in 2000, where he wrote a book claiming that security service agents had coordinated the bombings of Russian apartment buildings. The bombings were blamed on Chechen terrorists and used as a justification to launch the second war between Russian forces and separatists there.In 2004, journalist Anna Politkovskaya fell ill on a plane as she was heading to try to help mediate the Beslan school hostage crisis, and poisoning was widely suspected. Politkovskaya was shot to death two years later.Journalist Yuri Shchekochikhin, who had investigated the apartment bombings and alleged corruption by security service officials, also died of an unexplained illness in 2003.Copyright © The Associated Press.

MOSCOW (AP) — A prominent Russian opposition figure who is being treated at a Moscow hospital for a sudden, mysterious illness won’t be taken abroad for care.Vladimir Kara-Murza was hospitalized Tuesday in a serious condition. Diagnoses have varied, with doctors saying Friday that he is suffering from kidney failure. No cause for the condition has been determined.After the poisoning of defector Alexander Litvinenko and the mysterious deaths of other Russian opposition figures, some worry that Kara-Murza could have been poisoned. Kara-Murza was a close associate of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, who was assassinated in February, and works with a civic organization founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former oil tycoon and Kremlin opponent.
