Tens of thousands rally in Moscow in support of free elections

Thousands have gathered in Moscow to demand free elections despite a police crackdown.

It is the fourth consecutive week when large numbers of people have taken to the streets of the Russian capital to demand opposition-minded candidates be allowed to run in a Moscow election next month – something the authorities have so far refused to allow.

Saturday’s protest has been authorized by city authorities, but a similar protest a week earlier was not and police detained more than 1,000 people.
