Russian journalist dies after beating in police custody | Media | guardian.co.uk

Russia‘s police force was today at the centre of another national scandal after a journalist beaten in custody died in hospital from his injuries.

Konstantin Popov, 47, was arrested two weeks ago in his home town of Tomsk, Siberia, after neighbours complained that he was drunk and playing his guitar too loudly.

Police took him a holding cell where, his friends allege, officers subjected him to a sadistic beating, raping him with a broom handle and causing severe internal injuries.

Is it just getting worse and worse for journalists all around the world?
