Journalists Mark 7th Anniversary of Politkovskaya's Murder

A memorial plaque was unveiled on Monday in Moscow to commemorate famous Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya on the seventh anniversary of her mysterious murder.

      The bronze memorial outside the offices of Novaya Gazeta, where Politkovskaya worked, features a portrait of the reporter and three sheets of paper torn from a notebook. The unveiling ceremony took place in the presence of Politkovskaya’s children Ilya and Vera, her sister Yelenaa, Novaya Gazeta newspaper editor Dmitry Muratov and many other journalists, human rights activists and public figures.

      In his speech at the ceremony, Muratov expressed his hope that one day there would be a fourth bronze sheet added to the plague with a notice that the mastermind behind the murder had been found and convicted.

      Anna Politkovskaya, a famous and respected journalist with the investigative Novaya Gazeta newspaper, was shot and killed in her apartment building on October 7, 2006. Her murder has been linked by some to her coverage of human rights abuses in Chechnya.

      Currenlty, there are five Chechen men suspected on the murder, including former police officer Sergei Khadzhikurbanov, Rustam, Ibragim, and Dzhabrail Makhmudov, and their uncle Lom-Ali Gaitukayev.
