Evgeny Lebedev: My father 'may be killed'

Newspaper owner Evgeny Lebedev has told Andrew Marr he fears his father may be killed if imprisoned in Russia.

Alexander Lebedev, himself a newspaper publisher in Russia, is charged with hooliganism for throwing a punch against another guest on national television, for which he could face seven years in prison.

Evgeny Lebedev believes his family's anti-corruption stance in the media means his father is a target for assassination, which would be made easier in jail.
