Russian Police detain over 100 as court deliberate on Navalny jail term


Russian police detained 112 people on Tuesday near a court in Moscow which had convened to consider jailing Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny for up to three and a half years, the OVD-Info protest monitoring group said.

Navalny is accused of repeated parole violations in a case that has sparked nationwide protests and talk of new Western sanctions. He calls the accusations absurd.
