first_imgMOSCOW (AP) — The Moscow police plan to stifle an opposition protest by clamping down on the center of the city has backfired. Not only did the massive demonstration demanding freedom for jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny take place Sunday, but it was spread throughout a wide swath of the city.
