Russian court orders arrest of Mikhail Khodorkovsky over contract killing

MOSCOW Russia has issued an international arrest warrant for Kremlin critic and former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky whom police accuse of ordering the killing of the mayor of a Siberian oil town, a police spokesman said on Wednesday.

Khodorkovsky, who denies the charges, was arrested in 2003 after falling out with Vladimir Putin and later convicted of tax evasion and fraud in a trial he said was politically-motivated.
