Russian ambassador to Sudan found dead at residence

Mirgayas Shirinskiy, 62, died from an acute heart attack, the Russian foreign ministry said.

Russia's RIA Novosti state news agency reported the veteran diplomat's death, citing the foreign ministry in Moscow.

Shirinskiy is the fourth Russian diplomat to die this year, after Russia's Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin died of a suspected heart attack, age 64.

These include Russia's Ambassador to India, Aleksandr Kadakin, who died in late January in New Delhi at the age of 67, reportedly of heart failure, and longtime Russian ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, who died suddenly in February in NY on the day before his 65th birthday, apparently of a heart attack.

The diplomat died while swimming in the pool of his residence, according to state broadcaster Russian Federation 24.

A senior police official in sudan who requested anonymity told AFP that, according to the first elements of the investigation, the track criminal was dismissed.

Sudan's foreign ministry expressed its condolences to Russian Federation in a statement, praising Shirinsky's diplomatic efforts.

State news broadcaster Russian Federation 24 reports that Skirinskiy, born in 1954 and appointed to his position in 2013, died while swimming in his pool.

Shirinsky's long diplomatic career also included postings in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
