ULAN UDE, May 23 (Itar-Tass) — A tourist from Japan has been atrociously killed in Zabaikalye (trand-Baikal area). "His body bearing the signs of a violent death was discovered on May 22 in Khilok District at the 760th kilometre of the Baikal Federal Highway (Irkutsk-Chita)," an official at the Investigation Department for Zabaikalye Territory of the Investigation Committee of Russia, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
"An investigation operative group inspected the scene of the incident where a Suzuki motorcycle, a tent, clothes, a mobile phone, money, and other personal belongings of the tourist were found. According to the main avenue of inquiry, a 31-year-old Japanese national was travelling about Russia, riding a motorcycle. He halted for the night not far from the Highway in the area of a road turn leading to Zhiphegen Village, Khilok District, and putched up a tent.
