Boris Nemtsov murder: Suspects appear in court

Five ethnic Chechens have appeared in court in Moscow, in connection with the murder late last month of Russian opposition activist Boris Nemtsov.

Prosecutors said Mr Nemtsov had died in a contract killing and that one of the men had confessed to being involved.

Mr Nemtsov was killed on a bridge within sight of the Kremlin as he was walking with his girlfriend at night.
