"I am not afraid," Russians march in memory of murdered Putin critic

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Holding placards declaring "I am not afraid", thousands of Russians marched in Moscow on Sunday in memory of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov, whose murder has widened a split in society that some say could threaten Russia's future. Families, the old and young walked slowly, with many carrying portraits of Nemtsov, an opposition politician and former deputy prime minister who was shot dead while walking home from a restaurant in central Moscow on Friday night.

Russians to march in memory of murdered critic of Putin

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Opposition supporters will march through Moscow on Sunday in memory of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov, whose murder has increased concern about Russia's future among opponents of President Vladimir Putin. Thousands of people laid flowers and lit candles on Saturday on a bridge near the Kremlin where the opposition politician and former deputy prime minister was shot dead late on Friday. National investigators who answer to Putin say they are pursuing several lines of inquiry, including the possibility that Nemtsov, a Jew, was killed by radical Islamists or that the opposition killed him to blacken the president's name #Yahoo! #content #typeof-social #cookie #rco #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

China military official booted from parliament in anti-graft drive

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has booted a senior military official who is embroiled in a corruption scandal from its parliament, state media reported on Saturday. The development, which comes as China's leadership pursues a campaign to weed out corruption and excess in its armed forces, is significant because it means Liu Zheng has been stripped of immunity from prosecution as a member of parliament, state media reported, citing a statement from the standing committee of the National People's Congress, the largely rubber-stamp legislature. Liu, a former deputy director of the powerful General Logistics Department of the People's Liberation Army, is under investigation, the Ministry of Defence said in January, accused of "seriously violating party discipline" - a common euphemism for graft #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #cookie #values #rco #aut #typeof-registered #cnt
