    A court in Moscow has ordered the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny to serve two and a half years in prison after ruling that he had violated the terms of his probation.

    The judge said he would be sent to a corrective labour camp.

    Mr Navalny’s allies immediately urged their supporters to protest against the court’s decision, despite the arrest of more than 300 people earlier today.
