Anna PolitkovskayaRussia's arguably bravest journalist and dissenting voice against Vladimir Putin has been murdered. Yesterday, Anna Politkovskaya was shot dead by an unknown assassin in the lift of the block of flats in Moscow where she lived.
Politkovskaya was a fierce critic of Putin's war in Chechnya, and would not be quiet about it, unlike much of the cowed Russian press. The question now is, was she silenced? It looks very much like a political murder - which Putin will be in the sights over.
A sad day for journalism indeed.
