MOSCOW, July 18 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's security chief said Tuesday is continuing operations to hunt down the killers of five diplomats in Iraq.

One embassy employee was shot June 3 in an attack on a car. Four others were abducted and executed later by an al-Qaeda linked group.

Nikolai Patrushev, the head of the Federal Security Service and the chairman of the national anti-terrorism committee, said his service was continuing work to foil terrorism.

"This is true of the search and elimination of the terrorists involved in the abduction and murder of Russian diplomats in Iraq," he said.

President Vladimir Putin gave orders in June for the killers of the diplomats to be found and killed.
