Russia intelligence agency sues paper over torture reports

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's main intelligence agency is suing a major independent newspaper for defamation over reports of torture in a Russian city. Court filings show that a Moscow court on Tuesday accepted the FSB's lawsuit against Novaya Gazeta over two articles published earlier this year. Novaya Gazeta interviewed rights activists and the wife of a man who was reportedly tortured soon after a deadly explosion in an apartment building in the city of Magnitogorsk in the Ural mountains on New Year's Eve.
