Litvinenko’s father, Walter, said in an interview published today that his son – who was born an Orthodox Christian but had close links to Islamist rebels in Chechnya – had requested to be buried according to Muslim tradition after converting to Islam on his deathbed.
“He said ’I want to be buried according to Muslim tradition’,” Mr Litvinenko told Moscow’s Kommersant daily.
“I said, ’Well son, as you wish. We already have one Muslim in our family – my daughter is married to a Muslim. The important thing is to believe in the Almighty. God is one.’”
