Moscow: Five men were convicted on Tuesday of murdering 2006 of
investigative journalist and Kremlin critic Anna Politkovskaya, including
three defendants who had been acquitted in a previous trial.
Politkovskaya's killing drew attention to the risks faced by Russians who
challenge the authorities and deepened Western concerns for the rule of law
under President Vladimir Putin, who was then serving his second term.
