Persecutions of journalists in North Caucasus continue

Ingush website http://ingushetiya.ru/news/15045.html reported that its editor had to leave Russia because of political persecutions. The website has been the only source of first hand information about the events in volatile republic of Ingushetia. Almost every day news come from Ingushetia about killings of civilians and law-enforcements people. The conflict is mainly caused by colonial policies Russian authorities excercise in the region and unwillingness of the Ingush people to accept it.

The editor of the website Rosa Malsagova presemably fled to a European country with her three children and intends ask for assylum there.

The website is now trying to replace the editor with someone else.
