UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday condemned the assassination of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, who was shot dead by unknown attackers in Moscow.

"The Secretary-General was shocked by and condemns the brutal killing of Boris Nemtsov in Moscow on 27 February," the United Nations press office said in a statement.

It said he expressed his condolences to Nemtsov's family, friends and supporters.
