Nariman Aliyev and his wife killed in their home in Dagestan

Nariman Aliyev, prominent regional figure in Dagestan, and his wife were shot dead in their house.

The deaths of Nariman Aliyev and his wife came after an opposition candidate in Russia's Dec. 2 parliamentary elections was fatally shot in Dagestan's capital, Makhachkala .

Aliyev, who long headed a state farm and was prominent in the winemaking business, was a former lawmaker and a member of Dagestan 's Public Chamber, a body that consults with the government on policy.

The province in Russia's troubled North Caucasus is troubled by violence linked to the separatist conflict in neighboring Chechnya, a police crackdown on Islamic militancy and internal power struggles.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
