Lithuania expels Russian TV crew, citing national security

Vilnius – Lithuanian authorities say three journalists from Russian state television have been expelled from the Baltic country after trying to enter a forum for Russian opposition leaders. Police said they were searching Thursday for a fourth member of the crew from the Rossiya 1 channel. Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius told reporters that the crew was “acting provocatively” at an event attended by Garry Kasparov and other Russian opposition figures in the southeastern town of Trakai.
