Journalists continue to be targeted in Russia

Latest update : 2008-09-03

A journalist in the Russian province of Dagestan died from gunshot wounds on Wednesday, according to police, a day after the US called on Russia to investigate the death of another Russian journalist, Magomed Yevloyev, while in police custody.

MAKHACHKALA, Russia - A prominent journalist in Dagestan, in Russia’s North Caucasus, died on Wednesday from wounds received in an attack overnight, regional police said.

Police said Abdulla Alishayev was attacked by unidentified assailants on Tuesday evening. He is the second Russian journalist to die since Sunday in Russia’s turbulent southern region.

“Alishayev received wounds to the shoulder and head. He was operated on, but his life could not be saved,” police said.

In nearby Ingushetia police used batons on Tuesday to break up an anti-government protest over the death in police custody on Sunday of opposition journalist Magomed Yevloyev.

Police said he was shot dead when he lunged for a gun. Human rights workers said they did not believe this story.

In March the chairman of the Dagestan State Television and Radio Broadcasting company was shot in his car by unknown assailants outside a supermarket in Makhachkala.
