Russian police detain 130 in anti-government protests

• Reuters

Police detained at least 130 protesters at New Year's Eve rallies in Moscow and St Petersburg on Friday against restrictions on freedom of assembly and a court decision to keep former tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky in jail.

A string of opposition leaders, heading a 1,500-strong protest in freezing weather in central Moscow, were among 70 people detained in the capital, an opposition website and non-state media said.
