Russian opposition leader Navalny jailed for 30 days - spokeswoman

MOSCOW, July 24 (Reuters) - Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was jailed for 30 days on Wednesday for calling an unauthorised protest, his spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh said on social media.

The sentence comes days ahead of a march the Kremlin critic planned to lead in Moscow to protest at the exclusion of several opposition-minded candidates from a local election in September. (Reporting by Polina Ivanova; Editing by Alison Williams)
