Revenge is a dish best served cold

It’ll be interesting to see where this one goes; and what happens in court if it was revenge.

Swiss air crash controller killed

The air traffic controller on duty when two planes collided over southern Germany in July 2002 has been killed at his home in Zurich.

Police are looking for a man, speaking broken German, who fled on foot after stabbing the controller in front of his wife after a brief exchange of words.

They said they could not rule out a link between the killing and the crash.

Seventy-one people - mostly Russian schoolchildren - died in the disaster. The controller was not publicly named.

Swiss police said a link to the crash was a “central issue” in their hunt for the attacker, who is described as being powerfully built and aged around 50.

“(Revenge) cannot be ruled out,” public prosecutor Pascal Gossner told Reuters news agency. “We are looking into whether there is a link between the killing and the air accident.”[/quote]
