Putin critic Boris Berezovsky found dead of unknown causes

A RUSSIAN oligarch and critic of President Vladimir Putin, Boris Berezovsky, was found dead in his United Kingdom home on Sunday.

The Independent reported Mr Berezovsky was found dead in his bath, but no definitive cause of death has been identified.

Mr Berezovsky was a successful businessman in Russia before Putin came to power, and he was exiled from the country.

Last year, he lost a major court case affecting his finances to tune of $3 billion, and the Independent reported speculation was rife in Europe over the cause of his death.
