Russia protests journalist's interrogation at US airport

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's Foreign Ministry is complaining that the interrogation of a website editor at a U.S. airport shows authorities are persecuting Russian journalists. Alexander Malkevich, editor of the USA Really website, reportedly was detained and questioned for several hours Friday at a Washington airport and told that his site must register in the U.S. as a foreign agent. The website is funded by the sponsors of the Russian "troll factory" accused of interference in the 2016 U.S. vote.
