Russia has identified the killer of rights activist Natalya Estemirova and the assassin is now the target of an international search, President Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday.

"The perpetrator of this murder -- the killer -- has been uncovered and definitively identified. He is on an international wanted list," Medvedev said at a summit with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg.

"Now an investigation is under way to not only establish the killer, who is the target of a search, but also the one who ordered this terrible crime," he said.
