  1. 10-25-03 Russia's Richest Man Arrested (BBC News)
      "Oil magnate Mikhail Khodorkovsky is widely assumed to be Russia's wealthiest tycoon by far."

      "At barely 40, he is credited with a personal fortune of $8bn - equivalent to the annual GDP of Iceland."

      "In recent weeks he has become increasingly caught up in a campaign launched against the company he heads, Yukos."

      "The oil giant has been the focus of inquiries which Mr Khodorkovsky - an open critic of President Vladimir Putin - says are politically motivated."

      "Analysts believe his troubles may be linked to his stated intention to fund political opponents to Mr Putin in the run-up to parliamentary elections in December." 10-03
