Second Moscow journalist attacked in two days


A second journalist has been attacked in Moscow just two days after the attempted murder of a well-known reporter.

Anatoly Adamchuk, who works for a regional paper in the city, suffered concussion and head injures.

It follows the brutal beating on Saturday of reporter Oleg Kashin, which prompted President Dmitry Medvedev to instruct the prosecutor general to take special control of the investigation.

Political correspondent for Kommersant Oleg Kashin was attacked by two men with an iron bar. He has been left in a coma.

Colleagues are calling for the Kremlin to tackleviolence against journalists – to date the murders of 19 of them remain unsolved.
