Journalist Found Stabbed To Death In Moscow

18 July 2004 -- A journalist was found stabbed to death in Moscow yesterday, a week after a U.S.-born magazine editor was shot dead outside his Moscow office.

Police said the body of Pail Peloyan was found yesterday on the side of a highway. He was the editor of "Armyanski Pereulok" ("Armenian Lane"), a Russian-language culture magazine.

On 9 July, the editor of the Russian edition of "Forbes" magazine, Paul Klebnikov, was shot to death in Moscow. After the killing, the U.S.-based Committee to Protect Journalists called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to change what the group called "the climate of lawlessness" that has enabled attacks against journalists in Russia.
