Bolshoi Dancer Admits To Organizing, But Not Executing, Acid Attack

NPR | March 7, 2013 8:49 a.m.

Three men confessed Wednesday to carrying out an attack on the artistic director of the Bolshoi ballet. Sulfuric acid was thrown in the face of Sergei Filin back in January, disfiguring and nearly blinding him. Police detained three men, including a lead soloist in the company. The dancer admitted to organizing the attack. Melissa Block talks with New York Times Moscow reporter Ellen Barry about the story.
