    Russia's opposition Novaya Gazeta newspaper has said it will pull its journalists out of Chechnya after a human rights activist and her husband were killed as part of a string of killings there. In October 2006, the same paper's investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya, known for her scathing criticism of pro-Moscow Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov and the Kremlin, was shot dead near her Moscow apartment. In the latest killings, Zarema Sadulayeva, the kidnapped head of a children's charity, and her husband Alik Dzhabrailov were found murdered in the boot of a car in Chechnya on Aug. 12. (Reuters)
