Deputy's Aide Shot




MOSCOW -- An aide to an ultranationalist lawmaker was shot and killed in St. Petersburg, Itar-Tass said.


Igor Klyachko was shot twice in the head and twice in the chest, the news agency said Wednesday. Neighbors found his body in the entrance to his house on Tuesday.


An identification card showed him to be an aide to Vyacheslav Shevchenko, a lawmaker in Vladimir Zhirinovksy's ultranationalist Liberal Democratic Party.


No motive for the killing was given. Police said they found on Klyachko a revolver, a permit to carry arms and several thousand dollars in a bag.
