The Kremlin Tuesday defended a controversial media blackout on the grisly murder of a toddler allegedly killed and beheaded by her nanny who then paraded the bloodied head on a Moscow street.The death of the girl named Nastya, said by investigators to be just three or four years old, has shocked usually hardened Muscovites.President Vladimir Putin's spokesman denied the state-controlled channels had received a gag order from the Kremlin but said the presidential administration approved of their decision.Others looked bewildered, unaware of what happened, and one woman asked why television did not report the murder.Kremlin critics derided the blackout, charging that national television would provide blanket coverage of a similar tragedy were it to happen in the West.
