Kasparov Arrested

The BBC reports that opposition leader Garry Kasparov has been arrested during preparations for the “March of the Dissenters” rally on Moscow’s Pushkin Square.

The Ekho Moskvy radio station quotes Vladimir Ryzhkov as saying that many bystanders, including pensioners and elderly women, who were not taking part in the march have been badly beaten by riot police.
