Evening Times - - THE WORLD TODAY -

GER­MAN pros­e­cu­tors have taken over the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the day­light killing of a Ge­or­gian man on the streets of Berlin.

They say ev­i­dence sug­gests it was or­dered ei­ther by the gov­ern­ment of Rus­sia or the Chechen Repub­lic.

The For­eign Min­istry im­me­di­ately an­nounced the ex­pul­sion of two Rus­sian diplo­mats fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment, cit­ing a lack of co-op­er­a­tion with the probe into the Au­gust 23 killing of the 40-year-old man in the cap­i­tal.

It did not iden­tify the names or the func­tions of the two diplo­mats be­ing ex­pelled.
