    MOSCOW - A Russian journalist known for her critical coverage of the war in
    Chechnya was shot to death on Saturday, her body discovered in an elevator in her apartment building in Moscow, officials said.


    Anna Politkovskaya, a tireless investigative reporter, had written a critical book on Russian President
    Vladimir Putin and his campaign in Chechnya, documenting widespread abuse of civilians by government troops.
