ChessVibes: "FIDE elections: Karpov suggests link between Ilyumzhinov and Yudina murder"
Interesting reading. One is reminded of Sayre's Law: "The politics of the university are so intense because the stakes are so low." Had Prof. Sayre ever met "chess politicians," he might have proposed a corollary.
However, I don't wish to imply that Karpov's suggestion is unfounded: this 2006 profile of Ilyumzhinov provides some context.
I feel unclean. Back to chess itself....
