Politkovskaya Release

Investigators on Tuesday cleared another detainee in the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya and said the investigation should wrap up by June 20.

Shamil Burayev was released on bail after prosecutors said he posed no obstacle to investigations, the Prosecutor General's Office said in a statement.

Burayev, a former head of the Achkoi-Martan region of Chechnya, had been charged with giving Politkovskaya's address to others involved in the killing.
