Only In Russia: Police Arrested 3 and 6 years Old Children

Posted by Info on 11/02/2011

Environmentalists trying to protect an ancient woodland near Moscow say police have arrested an Alla Chernysheva activist and her children, aged three and six on suspicion of making a hoax bomb threat.

Her arrest was an attempt to intimidate the group. Police denied knowledge of the detention.

Part of the Khimki forest is being pulled down to make way for a Moscow-St Petersburg motorway. Corruption in such projects is common in Russia. Several journalists and activists who have written or campaigned against the project have been attacked and beaten.
