"Everybody is watching" how the Russian government investigates the killing of "heroine" journalist Anna Politkovskaya, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said. "It's a very sad event and one that needs to be fully and totally investigated by the Russian government that she was killed in this brutal way," she said in an interview with ABC News Tuesday. Politkovskaya, an award-winning investigative reporter who had criticized Putin and Russia's conduct in Chechnya, was gunned down in her apartment building Saturday. Prosecutors have said she was probably killed because of her journalistic work, but said there are no immediate leads.
