Thousands march in Russia to mourn Putin critic Boris Nemtsov

Holding placards declaring “I am not afraid”, thousands of Russians marched in Moscow on Sunday in memory of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov, whose slaying on the streets of the capital has shaken Russia’s beleaguered opposition.

One organizer said that more than 70,000 people turned out in central Moscow on Sunday, many carrying Russian flags and slowly marching through an avenue alongside the River Moskva. Police estimated the crowd at more than 16,000. The Associated Press reported 30,000 attended the march.
