Investigation into Politkovskaya's killing to be reopened

Anna PolitkovskayaMoscow - A Russian judge Friday ordered state investigators to reopen the probe into the murder of investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya, after prosecutors failed to convince a jury that four men accused had a part in her killing, Russian news agencies reported.

"The criminal investigation will be sent back to the Russian Prosecutors' Investigative Committee to find the individuals who committed this crime," the presiding judge at the Moscow military court, Yevgeny Zubov, was quoted by Interfax as saying.
