1906-02-13 THE ATTEMPT ON ADMIRAL CHUKHNIN

London Times, 13 February 1906: THE ATTEMPT ON ADMIRAL CHUKHNIN. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ST. PETERSBURG, FEB. 12.

            According to an unpublished version of the attempted assassination of Admiral Chukhnin, the latter, on learning that the woman who had fired at and wounded him had been arrested, ordered the sentry to shoot her, which was immediately done. The body was promptly buried, but the judicial authorities have had it disinterred, and held a post-mortem examination to establish the cause of death. The woman’s identity has not been finally established.
