Chechen rebel leader Shamil Basayev killed

A bit of good news on a Monday.

Russia's security chief said Monday that Shamil Basayev, Russia's most wanted terrorist for a string of attacks that claimed hundreds of lives, had been killed in southern Russian.

This was the guy who was responsible for the Beslan school massacre in which over a hundred children were killed. About time he stopped breathing the same air as the rest of us.
Security services reported earlier in the day that a group of militants had been killed preparing for a terrorist attack when their explosive-laden truck blew up. And it later transpired that Basayev had been traveling in an accompanying car.

Got to watch the speedbumps when you're carrying explosives. I guess Allah didn't like this asshole either.

A local police source said, "Basayev's body was found by FSB officers after a car wired with explosives blew up. The convoy included three cars with militants, one of which was Basayev."

This is surely a sign of the level of intelligence Islamic militants are in possession of. You'd think you'd trail the bomb car at a safe distance but noooo, not Abdullah Shamil al-Moron.

"The terrorist was decapitated by the explosion, but from characteristic traits, it was suggested that the body was none other than Shamil Basayev," sources said.

Ah, nothing as poetic as justice. I'm smiling.
