    The United States has published a list of 18 people it has banned from the country, 16 of whom are linked to the case of Russian whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky who died in custody in 2009.

    The 37-year-old lawyer's family and friends say he was beaten in jail and denied medical treatment. The US law named after him has complicated relations with Moscow.
