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 â€™I want to be buried according to Muslim traditionâ€™,” Mr Litvinenko told Moscow’s Kommersant daily.
“I said, â€™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.â€™”
