MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian police detained 435 people in central Moscow during an opposition protest on Saturday, the monitoring group OVD-Info said.

Police earlier detained prominent members of the opposition before the protest against what the opponents says is the unfair exclusion of opposition-minded candidates from a Sept. 8 local election in Moscow.
