A well-known journalist for Russia's top independent radio station was stabbed in the throat Monday by an unidentified attacker who burst into her studio – the latest in a string of attacks on journalists and opposition activists in Moscow.The assailant broke into the Ekho Moskvy offices and stabbed deputy editor Tatyana Felgenhauer, editor-in-chief Alexei Venediktov said. The station said the attack was clearly premeditated.Moscow police said the attacker had a personal grudge against Felgenhauer. It released a brief video, in which the attacker told investigators that he had a "telepathic contact" with Felgenhauer since 2012 .Dmitry Muratov, editor-in-chief of the Novaya Gazeta newspaper, says Russian authorities's failure to respond to the attacks and threats against independent journalists, activists and opposition leaders have made such attacks possible.
