A penalty try with just 28 seconds left on the clock earned Italy only their second ever Six Nations win on the road in a tense contest at Murrayfield. The Italians were trailing 19-15 and facing their third defeat of the season when Irish referee George Clancy awarded them their third try of the game after the backpedalling Scotland pack pulled down a threatening maul close to the home line. Italy’s only other Six Nations victory away from home also came at Scotland’s expense, a 37-17 success in 2007. This time it was Scotland who got off to a flying start, Scotland’s scrum-half and captain Greig Laidlaw landing a penalty after Simone Favaro, Italy’s openside flanker, was punished for coming in at the side of a ruck with just 17 seconds on the clock.
By Timothy Heritage and Alexander Winning MOSCOW (Reuters) - Thousands of stunned Russians laid flowers and lit candles on Saturday on the bridge where opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was shot dead near the Kremlin, a murder that showed the risks of speaking out against President Vladimir Putin. Nemtsov, 55, was shot four times in the back by killers in a white car late on Friday as he walked across the bridge over the Moskva River in central Moscow with a Ukrainian woman, who was unhurt, police said. Police sealed off the blood-stained bridge close to the red walls of the Kremlin and Red Square for two hours overnight, then hosed it down as people came to pay tribute to one of Putin's biggest opponents over Russia's role in Ukraine. Russia's Investigative Committee, which answers to Putin, said it was following several lines of inquiry, including that the opposition may have committed the crime to rally support for a march against Kremlin policies on the economy and Ukraine.
