Putin murder plotters foiled

Russian and Ukrainian security groups have foiled a plan to assassinate Prime Minister Vladimir Putin after Russia's presidential election next month.

Ukrainian special services detained two people in the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa after an explosion at a rented apartment in which one person was killed.

Plotters had been working for a group that wants to create an Islamic state in Russia's North Caucasus and had planned to travel to Moscow to assassinate Putin, who is expected to win the presidential election
