List of BBC reporters in Russia leaked with their photos

A list of BBC reporters working in Russia has been leaked online, along with their photographs, amid growing pressure on the broadcaster in Russia.

The list of 44 journalists, most of them Russian citizens, appears to have first been published in the anonymously run For Mother Russia group on the social network VKontakte. It was then reprinted by a rightwing Russian news website with photographs culled from the journalists’ social media profiles and other public sources.
