Aizderdzis, publisher of the weekly newspaper Who's Who and a member of the Russian State Duma (the lower house of Parliament), was killed by a shotgun blast to the throat as he returned to his home in the Moscow suburb of Khimki. Russian lawmakers believe the slaying stems from the publication in Who's Who of the names of 266 organized crime figures.
