As a human being

Anna Politkovskaya

I had the honour of meeting Anna Politkovskaya briefly earlier this year. She was murdered on Saturday. Chechnya’s prime minister Ramzan Kadyrov, a target of Politkovskaya’s criticism, said:

I want to underline that although Politkovskaya’s material about Chechnya was not always objective, as a human being I am sincerely sorry for the journalist.

    That’s an UnSpeakably foul epitaph.

    Thanks for the link, that’s a good (and depressing) article.

    As part of their investigation into her killing, police seized documents from Politkovskaya’s home and office, as well as her computer
