Russia's central bank deputy shot dead

Andrei Kozlov, the central bank of Russia's first deputy chairman, died in hospital hours after he was shot on Wednesday 13 September.

Officials suggested the attack was prompted by his efforts to clean up the country's banking system.

Kozlov's driver was also killed in the attack, which Russian media said was carried out by two unidentified gunmen who fled after the shooting. It occurred outside a sports arena where bank employees were having a soccer game.
