Break-in at Jewish newspaper office - Moscow

Haartez: Burglars have broken into the office of a Jewish newspaper in Moscow and stolen computer hard drives and documents. Yabraskaya Gazeta, considered the only independent Jewish newspaper in Russia, was forced to postpone publishing this week's issue as a result of the break-in. Two weeks ago, two scanners were stolen from the office. . . .

Among other things, the newspaper publishes articles and columns written by former U.S. secretary of state Henry Kissinger and American Jewish columnist Charles Krauthammer.
