CNN reports that Russia has decided to ban ABC's journalists from the country after the network broadcast an interview with Shamil Basayev, the Chechin terrorist leader whom the Russian government has been chasing for years. Basayev has taken responsibility for the Beslan attack in September 2004 in which 330 people, including many children, died, a Moscow bombing that killed 10, and two passenger jet explosions that killed 90.
