When former Russian security agent Aleksandr Litvinenko was killed in London in 2006, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a cryptic reference to the Biblical story of Lazarus -- who rose from the dead. Later, Litvinenko's widow Marina found her husband had been writing about Lazarus. It's not clear what either man meant with their separate references. Marina showed Litvinenko's notebook to Shahida Yakub from RFE/RL's Current Time TV.
