Two Americans Dead in Moscow

Moscow police are seeking to determine the causes of death of two American men who died within hours of each other over the weekend in different parts of the city, Interfax reported, citing an unidentified source in law enforcement.

The first man, a 52-year-old Boston resident, died at 6:30 a.m. Sunday in one of the city's hospitals, where he had spent 19 days after being brought in from the territory of the Moscow region. He was transported there after being discovered unconscious in his courtyard, the report said, noting that he had been in Russia on a business visa.

The second man was a 57-year-old American discovered in his bed on Saturday morning at 8 a.m. A young woman was in the man's apartment with him, the report said, and police believed heart trouble may have been the cause of death.

He was also in the country on a business visa.
