A still image taken from a video footage shows Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny being detained by Interior Ministry members in Moscow. Russian police wrestled Navalny into a patrol wagon moments after he appeared at a rally to urge voters to boycott what he said would be a rigged presidential election in March. He was released around midnight without charges, his lawyer Olga Mikhailova told Reuters, but would face court at a later date. If charged with violating laws on holding demonstrations, Navalny could face up to 30 days in prison.
