Imran Aliev, 44, was found lying on the ground in his hotel in Lille, France with "multiple wounds" in his chest and his throat slit with a bloodied knife next to it. Aliev has been a strong critic of Vladimir Putin and Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov on his popular blog and youtube accounts for years, working under the pseudonyms of Mansur Stariy or Old Mansur. His 35-year-old Chechen travelling companion disappeared shortly after the shocking murder that was discovered by the hotel manager on January 30 after they failed to check out. The pair had travelled from Mr Aliev's home in Belgium where he was under police protection, to Lille, France, via train on January 29 where they booked into the Coq Hardi Hotel. French officers are now hoping to track down Aliev's mysterious companion who is still missing over a week after the killing.
