LITVINENKO BREAKTHROUGH: SCOTLAND YARD IDENTIFIES KILLER NAMED 'VLADISLAV'

LONDON--Scotland Yard has announced the identification of close circuit footage of the poisoner of ex-FSB Colonel Alexander Litvinenko today. It appears that the image-quality will be adequate in identifying the individual, who "is described as being tall and powerfully built, in his early thirties with short, cropped black hair and distinctive Central Asian features." (axisglobe.com, 01.20.2007) The footage comes from security cameras at Heathrow airport, and were recorded on November 1st of 2006, and match Litvinenko's description of a man he met at the Millennium Hotel in London that day. The Yard has no plans of revealing the images to the press for wide-release. Yes, I'm sure the name is an alias, he could be anybody. But he is definitely a contract-killer, and Scotland Yard has his real name. It's too-early to tell where this all leads.
