I noticed a mention of Anna Politkovskaya's alleged poisoning this past fall and thought: "I haven't heard anything about her since Beslan - where is she?"
Her latest story in Novaya Gazeta is about several mothers whose children are either dead or missing, and how they blame it on the teachers who managed to survive, and how unfair that is, because the ones to blame are the terrorists, and the local authorities, and the local police, and the investigators who aren't done interrogating the witnesses yet, and, of course, Putin is to blame, too - many people, but not the teachers who were taken hostage together with the children and could have died just as well.
It hurts to read about it - not just this piece by Politkovskaya, but about Beslan in general, and this is probably the first time I've read something in the past couple of months. I have to run now but I'll translate part of this piece in the evening.
I've no idea how the story of Politkovskaya's poisoning ended. It was hard to care too much about it then, and when it was all over, it was hard to remind oneself of it all again. Maybe I'll look through Novaya Gazeta's archives tonight, and if I find something, I'll post it here.
