The Sound of Silencing
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Gunmen have shot dead the Russian editor of Forbes magazine, who earned notoriety by writing a book about exiled magnate Boris Berezovsky.

Paul Khlebnikov, 41, had walked out of his office late on Friday in northeastern Moscow when a car pulled up and several shots were fired at him. Khlebnikov, a U.S. citizen of Russian origin, died on his way to hospital.
So, the magazine just started publishing in Russia in April and reported Moscow the city with the most billionaires - did someone not like be "outed"? Khlebnikov also wrote a rather unflattering account of the exiled Boris Berezovsky in his book entitled Godfather of the Kremlin: Boris Berezovsky and the Looting of Russia but that was back in 2000.
