Moscow: A journalist who works for a suburban
Moscow paper has been beaten up by two unknown men.

The attack on Anatoly Adamchuk came two days after a
Moscow newspaper reporter was beaten so badly he was
hospitalised with a head injury, shattered jaw and broken leg.

No motivation for either attack has been determined, but
both journalists wrote about efforts to protect forests around
Moscow.

Police in the town of Zhukovsky say they are
investigating today`s attack on Adamchuk, who was not
hospitalised.

The brutal beating of Kommersant reporter Oleg Kashin,
who had to be put in a drug-induced coma, has caused a
national uproar. President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered that
his attackers be found and punished.
