Report: Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov is dead

Unconfirmed for now....get ready for MC Hammer's happy dance

(CNN) -- Chechen warlord Doku Umarov, one of Russia's most wanted men, has died, a Chechen jihadist website said Tuesday.

The Kavkaz Center website said Umarov would be replaced as leader of the Islamist group Caucasus Emirate by Ali Abu Mohammed.

Umarov's forces have claimed responsibility for several deadly bombings, including in Moscow. His death has been reported several times by the Kremlin-backed leader of the Chechnya region, but never before by Umarov's sympathizers.

The report of Umarov's death has not been independently confirmed.

The website did not say when or how Umarov had died. It called him "a martyr."

Someone will update this post with Mr.Hammer when its confirmed...

UPDATE by Rusty: FIRED!
