  Anna Politkovskaya 13 October 2004  
Anna Politkovskaya
The Russian journalist  talks about her critique of 'Putin's Russia'

Anna has been so critical of the President and so outspoken about the situation in Chechnya that she received death threats and had to flee the country.

Back in Russia now, she claims to have been drugged on her way to cover the recent siege in the school in Beslan. 

Jenni discusses why the authorities are so frightened of what  Anna has to say and whether she is herself scared of where her outspokenness will lead her.
