Moscow: As many as 12 people have been arrested after a Russian regional lawmaker's body was discovered stuffed into a barrel of cement near Moscow, investigators said Monday.

Mikhail Pakhomov, 36, a legislator in the Lipetsk city parliament with the ruling United Russia party, was reported missing early last week and a murder investigation was launched.

"Pakhomov's body was discovered in a barrel of cement near the village of Obukhovo in the Moscow Region district of Noginsk," an Investigative Committee spokesperson said.

The barrel was in the basement of a private garage.
