MOSCOW — A well-known journalist for Russia’s top independent radio station was stabbed in the throat Monday by an 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. She is best known for cohosting a popular morning radio show and also serves as deputy editor.
Felgenhauer, 32, underwent surgery at a hospital and was put in a medically induced coma as doctors determined the best course of treatment, he said.
‘‘Our curse is from within us,’’ he said, speaking from northern Syria, where he fled years ago.
Once a predominantly Christian town known for its ancient monastery, Qaryatayn has changed hands between the Islamic State and the Syrian government several times during Syria’s civil war.
