Kazakh editor released

From Radio Free Europe:

Russian authorities have released Irina Petrusheva, an opposition journalist who was detained in Russia at the request of the Kazakh police.

Russian authorities released Petrusheva on the grounds that she is a Russian citizen, RFE/RL's Kazakh Service reported.

Petrusheva is the editor in chief of the Kazakh opposition weekly "Respublika." Kazakh authorities have sought her detention on charges of tax evasion and breaking Kazakh citizenship laws since 2002.
