Human rights journalist shot dead

A masked man shot and killed on Monday a Russian human rights lawyer known for his work on abuses by the Russian military in the breakaway region of Chechnya, Russian media reported. Novaya Gazeta newspaper journalist Anastasia Baburova who tried to intervene was also fatally shot in the head. She reportedly died on an operating table.
      Mr. Markelov, 34, was killed just after holding a news conference. In recent days, he had been fighting against the early release from prison of a Russian colonel who had been convicted of brutally murdering a Chechen woman.
