Russia: Editor of local newspaper shot and wounded

Khusein Shadiyev, editor of Serdalo newspaper (Ingushetia – North Caucasus) has been hospitalised with a gunshot wound on Monday, ITAR-TASS reported.

The journalist’s driver said a Zhiguli car drove up alongside the editor’s Volga, and gunshots were fired out of the vehicle’s half-open window, hitting Shadiyev’s right shoulder, according to Kommersant. The aggressors quickly fled the scene and are still at large.

Shadiyev’s colleagues believe that the attack was related to the reporter’s work.
