Russia protests: Over thousand arrested at Moscow rally

Jul 28, 2019 10:06 IST

In one of the biggest crackdowns in years, police have detained more than 1,000 people at a rally in Moscow. Multiple reports said that the demonstrators were dragged away from the city hall as security forces used batons against the crowd. People were protesting against the exclusion of opposition candidates from local polls. The opposition say they were barred for political reasons. Some of the candidates banned from standing in the 8 September election had been detained earlier.
