April 1, 2006 -- An American freelance journalist questioned by police in Daghestan says her interrogators' aim seems to be to identify her sources in Russia's restive North Caucasus region.
Kelly McEvers arrived in Daghestan two weeks ago on a fellowship from Johns Hopkins University to research a story on the region.
In a telephone interview with the Associated Press from Makhachkala today, she said police took her in for long rounds of questioning over the past three days and also confiscated her notebooks, tapes, and computer hard drives.
She said she had been told to return to the regional Interior Ministry headquarters for another round of questioning today.
