He had earlier examined the bodies in the morgue of Bolan Medical Collage Hospital. He was accompanied by another Russian diplomat, Mr Alexey V. Falunin. Replying to reporters' questions, Mr Dzhavadov said: “Four of the five persons appear to be Russian nationals and one of them looks like a Tajik. They are not Chechens”.
