Russians protest against Putin
Some 18,000 people marched through pouring rain in Moscow on Tuesday to protest against Vladimir Putin's recent return to the presidency for a third term. On Monday, armed police raided the homes of some of the demonstration's most prominent leaders. It wasn't clear what the authorities were looking for.
