Russian Murder Suspect Runs for Mayor

The ante has been upped on Russian corruption: According to the BBC, “Andrei Lugovoi, the prime suspect in the murder of Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko, is set to run for mayor of the southern Russian city of Sochi.” Litvinenko was poisoned in London in 2006, and the British police want to question Lugovoi. Sochi is scheduled to host the 2014 Winter Olympics.
