Counter-terror police investigate death of Russian businessman

Nikolai Glushkov a Russian exile and former associate of the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky has reportedly been found dead at his home in London

London's Metropolitan Police force said counterterrorism detectives are leading the investigation "as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had".

Meanwhile, Britain's government announced that police and security services will open new investigations into more than a dozen deaths reportedly linked to Russian security services and mafia groups.

Police did not release the man's name saying the man had not been formally identified.

Mr Glushkov was twice charged with fraud in Russian Federation and was a close ally of Mr Berezovsky, who was once one of the most powerful businessmen in Russian Federation and played a pivotal role in Vladimir Putin's rise to power during the late 1990s.

Andrei Borovkov told Russian media outlets on Tuesday that his client, Nikolai Glushkov, was found dead inside his south London home and that he was unaware of the time and circumstances.

Then, flight attendants began telling everyone on-board they would be making an emergency landing and to keep their heads down. The fire department said two people were brought to local hospitals but did not reveal the nature of their injuries.

Billionaire and business oligarch Berezovsky later ran afoul of the Kremlin when he publicly denounced Putin and brought a lawsuit against his ally, fellow billionaire Roman Abramovich.

Glushkov was questioned as part of a British inquiry into the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko, who died a slow and painful death after drinking tea laced with highly radioactive polonium-210 in 2006 in a hotel bar in London.

Britain has given Russia until midnight Tuesday to explain how the Russian-made nerve agent came to be used in an English city, or face retaliatory measures. Too many bodies are happening.

Speaking to the Guardian at the time, Glushkov said he was extremely sceptical that Berezovsky took his own life, claiming that he was "killed".

Glushkov held a top position with Russia's state airline Aeroflot and worked under Berezovsky in the nineties. Glushkov wasn't as fortunate; he served five years over money laundering and fraud, The Guardian reports, before following Berezovsky to England several years later.
