    A judge ruled on Nov. 17 that the trial of three men accused of involvement in the killing of the journalist Anna Politkovskaya should be open to the public, responding to her family's concern that secret proceedings would harm the case. Politkovskaya was a crusading opposition journalist who covered the war in Chechnya and often criticized the Kremlin. Her killing in October 2006 brought widespread condemnation. She was gunned down as she entered her apartment building. (NY Times)
