    FILE - In this Wednesday, March, 10, 2010 file photo, self-exiled oligarch Boris Berezovsky leaves the High Court in London after winning his libel case against a Russian broadcaster that accused him of masterminding the murder of a former Russian agent in London. Russia’s transition from a Kremlin-controlled economy to a free market in the 1990s brought on a wave of contract killings as criminals, entrepreneurs, and corrupt officials tried muscle each other out of lucrative businesses. The recent death of 67-year old Boris Berezovsky, which remains unexplained, has revived fears that the assassins that have long stalked oligarchs and opposition figures back in Russia have been making their home in the U.K. (AP Photo/Alastair Grant, File)

    FILE - In this Feb. 15, 2011, file photo, Lance Armstrong pauses during an interview in Austin, Texas. Armstrong is being sued for more than $1.5 million by a British newspaper which lost a libel action for publishing doping allegations against the now-disgraced cyclist. The Sunday Times paid Armstrong 300,000 pounds (now about $485,000) in 2006 to settle a case after it reprinted claims from a book in 2004 that he took performance-enhancing drugs.

    Men look at newspapers displayed for sale at a booth in Tunis March 19, 2012. Tunisian journalists and secularists fear these incidents, and the roughing-up of reporters covering a protest outside the interior ministry in February, mean the interim government wants to roll back gains in freedom of expression after the uprising that ousted veteran dictator Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. What concerns many is that legal action has tended to ignore the poor sourcing and libel that plague the profession and focus instead on issues of public morality. With the ban on criticism of the government only recently lifted, Tunisian journalists worry that they are tripping over new red lines. Picture taken March 19, 2012.
