Russian journalist murder trial postponed

Six years after the murder of Anna Politkovskaya there are still concerns over safety of journalists.

    The trial of a man suspected of killing the Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya has been extended until March 2013.

    It has been more than 6 years since the investigative journalist was shout outside her Moscow apartment building.

    Since then, little has been done to protect journalists who have been critical of the Russian government.
