Video: Chechnya blamed for killing


  Pressure on Russia to protect rights activists  

Supporters of slain human rights activist, Natalia Estemirova, are anxious about who will be next on the list of dead opponents of the Chechen government.

Russia’s president has pledged that her killers will be punished, but the organisation Estemirova worked for blames the Kremlin-backed Chechen president for her death.
