Authorities said Saturday that a French diplomat was found dead in a Moscow suburb. The French Embassy said in a terse statement posted on its Web site that Laurent Delahaye died on Saturday morning, and offered condolences to his family. The statement did not elaborate, and an embassy spokesman refused to comment on the circumstances of the death. Delahaye was listed in phone directories as an attach of the embassy's political section. A Moscow police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said Delahaye's body was found in a yard in Khimki, a town on Moscow's northern outskirts. The police officer said Delahaye apparently had killed himself, but refused further comment pending investigation.
