Russia detains Crimean Tatars for Red Square protest | AFP

Russian police detains seven Crimean Tatars on Red Square as they hold up posters protesting against the persecution of the Muslim ethnic group on the peninsula. The indigenous community has largely opposed Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, and the protest comes on the eve of a Supreme Court hearing for four Crimean Tatars convicted of plotting an uprising. A group of around 18 men stood in line on the cobbled square holding posters, including photographs of prisoners and slogans such as “End repressions” and “Our children are not terrorists”.
