Repercussions.....

Reuters reports today:

"The murder of Anna Politkovskaya, a prominent Russian journalist and fierce critic of President Vladimir Putin, has raised fears among liberals of intense pressure on remaining outposts of press freedom in the country.

Investigators are still looking for clues to the shooting on Saturday of the 48-year-old journalist, found dead in her Moscow home. Her colleagues believe she paid the price for her vigorous opposition to the authorities on sensitive issues.

"The murder of Anna Politkovskaya is a new attack on democracy, freedom of speech and openness in Russia," the Moscow Union of Journalists said in a statement."


Meanwhile, probably one of the only interviews with Politkovskaya whilst in Australia earlier this year can be heard here.
