The violence in Ingushetia – IX

Reuters has an updated report on the forcibly dispersed Nazran rally. Excerpt:

A senior Russian rights activist said he and a television crew had been abducted and beaten by security agents in the southern region of Ingushetia, just hours before a protest against police brutality.

Oleg Orlov of rights group Memorial told Reuters he and a film crew from the REN-TV channel were snatched from their hotel rooms in the Ingushetian town of Nazran by a group of masked and armed men who said they were from an anti-terrorist unit.

Jussi

Jussi had a difficult time for a week or so – he developed an inflammation in the lining of his bowel, but it has healed now, and he’s quite returned to his old self. Life in the cat shelter and before was hard, and he didn’t get much of a diet there. The food I was giving him was too rich. Now after a couple of visits to the vet he’s on dried food and water, and is doing much better.
