Who is the author of this beautiful #3?

Yesterday in a chess club some chess players asked me to show them some problems. They where excited with famous classics (version of Loveday's Indian problem, Turton by Wurzburg, annihilation by Moller and other), but they liked the most the threemover by unknown author, at least for us here. Several years ago Marjan Kova?ević reprinted the problem in his chess column in the main Belgrade daily newspaper "Politika" asking the same question I ask here, but without answer.

So, does anybody know who is the author of following threemover:
(= 5+5 )

Those who have not seen this problem before will surely enjoy in solving it!

A beautiful problem indeed, but it took me 20-30 seconds to solve...

I don't know who composed that problem, but, like Uri, I solved it quickly, because it reminded me of the following problem!

The page mentioned by Uri Avner still exists out of Google Cache:

Maybe the webmaster there should be asked?
