'Russian vigilante' becomes Deputy Minister

Vitaly Kaloev has been appointed as Deputy Minister of Construction and Architecture in Russia's Republic of North Ossetia. Last year Kaloev was freed on parole from the Swiss jail after serving two thirds of his sentence for murder.

He was found guilty of killing a Swiss air traffic controller who was one of those responsible for an air collision in 2002.

Kaloev lost his wife and child among the 70 people who died in the tragedy.
