Anna Politkovskaya Part 2

Episode 3.11: Anna Politkovskaya Part 2

In the conclusion of our two-part investigation into the case of Anna Politkovskaya, we recount the events of the day she was assassinated in what appeared to be a professional contract killing. We then look at the official investigation by Russian authorities, who captured several people who had been involved, but failed to find out who ordered the hit on this prominent journalist and human rights campaigner. Many people pointed the finger of blame at President Putin, but there were others who had motive to kill her.
