Caucasus: More Journalists Attacked, Killed

Following the death in police custody of a prominent critic of the authorities in Ingushetia, Terror News Briefs says that a rare anti-government rally held to protest the death of yet another journalist in the Russian Federation is sign of increased volatility in the Caucasus. Meanwhile, The Other Russia comments on news that another two journalists have been attacked in the region — one fatally. The blog says that this brings the number of journalists killed in Russia since 1991 to 220. Dzutsev's Weblog also comments on the news and says the “price of harrassing, beating and murdering a journalist in North Caucasus has dropped down to one of the lowest levels.”
