MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) —— A special correspondent of the Izvestia daily Ohran Djemal was injured in the Libyan capital of Tripoli. The report about the incident was posted on the website of the newspaper on Monday.

The journalist came under fire on the outskirts of the Libyan capital and was hospitalized with a leg injury to the Zintan hospital. The surgeons are preparing to make a surgery on him. “The doctors said that the bullet got through the shin and broke the bone. His life is not in danger,” the newspaper said in the report.


The investigation is considering all possible versions of the murder of the head of Sergiyev Posad town outside Moscow, spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee (SK) Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass. “Currently, the crime scene is being examined. Forensic investigators of the SK main investigative department for the Moscow region were sent to the scene to provide practical assistance. Investigative actions are conducted to establish all the circumstances of the incident. The investigation is considering all possible versions of the crime,” he said.

According to Markin, the murder has signs of contract killing.

“On August 22, a report on hospitalisation of the town head Yevgeny Dushko with gunshot wounds came to law enforcement bodies. According to preliminary data, approximately at 07:30 MSK an unknown person fired two shots at Dushko as he was leaving his house located in Sovetskaya Street in Sergiyev Posad,” the SK official said.

Dushko died in hospital from gunshort wounds.

Criminal proceedings under article “murder” of the RF Criminal Code have been instituted.

An Itar-Tass law enforcement source said, however, that seven bullets were fired at the town administration head. The source confirmed that it was most likely contract killing.
