Russian police say a masked intruder broke into Central Election Commissioner Ella Pamfilova’s home and attacked her repeatedly with an electric-shock device. The assailant reportedly entered her home through a terrace window. Police have launched a robbery investigation, and top officials from the Interior Ministry are managing the case.
According to the news agency Interfax, Pamfilova was not seriously injured in the attack. Later in the day, she took part in a planned international conference in Moscow.
