Kasparov Arrested at Other Russia's Rally in Moscow

On Saturday, Russian opposition activist Garry Kasparov was among about 170 people arrested as police moved against a banned anti-Kremlin rally in Moscow. Anti-Kremlin demonstrators plan to take again to the streets of St Petersburg on Sunday. More from BBC...

Also, BBC has published a short profile of Kasparov and his political activity with the opposition coalition The Other Russia.

The Sunday Herald's portrayal of Kasparov in lieu of the publishing of Kasparov's memoirs 'How Life Imitates Chess' was timed perfectly to coincide with the recent events in Moscow.
