Another suspect arrested over Politkovskaya case

Another suspect has been detained in connection with the murder of prominent Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, according to the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.

The newspaper says a 49-year-old criminal boss from Ukraine was arrested in Moscow several days ago. His name has not been revealed.

Ten people have been detained since the investigation into the journalist’s murder started.

Last month a Chechen official was charged as an accomplice in organising the murder.

Anna Politkovskaya was shot down on October 7, 2006.

On Sunday, Russia Today will be bringing you full coverage on the commemoration of her death.
