A 'terrorist' with strong British links has been arrested in connection with a foiled 'plot' to assassinate Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
Dramatic television footage showed half-naked and evidently wounded Chechen Adam Osmayev seized by special forces in the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa.
On his knees, his head bowed, he said in an alleged confession: 'Our goal was to go to Moscow and try to kill Prime Minister Putin... Our deadline was after the Russian presidential election.'
