MOSCOW (AP) – The head of Russia’s federal security service says two suspects have been detained in the killing a week ago of opposition politician Boris Nemtsov.

Alexander Bortnikov made the statement Saturday on state television, but did not give further details.

It was not clear if either of the suspects was believed to have fired the shots that killed Nemtsov as he walked over a bridge with a companion near the Kremlin on Feb. 28.
