by Karen Rockett, Sunday Mirror 23/01/2011

A RUSSIAN mafia boss and seven members of his family and staff have been ¬murdered.
The body of Vladimir Slizayev, known as “Khan”, was found with the bodies of seven other people, including his driver, relatives and a babysitter. The killings – fuelling concerns that southern Russia is increasingly in the grip of criminal gangs – were the second near the Black Sea coast since November when 12 members of a family were killed by a criminal gang.
