Omani Diplomat Found Dead in Moscow Hotel Room

Police are investigating the death of a foreign diplomat whose body was found in a Moscow hotel.

The body of the Omani Embassy's first secretary was discovered late Wednesday evening in a hotel room on Ulitsa Bolshaya Polyanka in Moscow, an investigator said.

He said that the initial examination hadn't turned up any signs of criminal wrongdoing and that no evidence of struggle had been found inside the hotel room, the Investigative Committee's website said in a statement.

The body will be sent for a forensic medical examination to establish the cause of death, the report said.

Moscow police earlier confirmed the discovery of a diplomat's body in one of the city's hotels, Interfax reported.
