The New York Times has updated coverage of the alleged poisoning of human rights lawyer Karinna Moskakleno in France. The article reports that French authorities have declared the poisoning a result of an accident, despite the fact that Moskalenko fell ill only days before she was set to attend pre-trail hearings in the murder case of journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

CPJ released an alert on October 14 expressing concern about the incident.
