Russian opposition leader Navalny appears in court over protest

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny appears in court over nationwide demonstrations last week that saw hundreds arrested as they protested Vladimir Putin’s inauguration for a fourth term. Navalny faces charges of organising an illegal protest and of disobeying police orders, which could see him jailed for up to two months or forced to pay a fine. A verdict was expected from the Moscow court on Friday, but the case was adjourned until next week for witnesses to be called.
