In this edition: After charity head Zarema Sadulayeva and her husband were found dead in Chechnya in yet another murder of an NGO worker in the conflict-torn region, Focus looks at the dangers of being a human rights activist in Russia.

REUTERS - The head of a charity and her husband, both kidnapped by a group of armed men in Russia's restive region of Chechnya, have been found dead, Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday.

 

On Monday, armed men raided the office of the Save the Generations charity and seized Zarema Sadulayeva and her husband.

 

"Their bodies have been found in the Chernorechye suburb of (the Chechen capital) Grozny," Interfax quoted a senior member of the Memorial rights group, Alexander Cherkasov, as saying. The report could not be immediately verified independently.
