Russia detains migrant workers in camps

Hundreds held in makeshift detention centres, part of a widespread crackdown on illegal immigration.

    Human rights groups in Russia have alleged high-handedness in the country’s bid to control the influx of illegal migrants.

    The country's new network of camps has been holding migrant workers from across the world, where they are rounded up before being readied for repatriation.

    Rights groups are raising concerns about the living conditions inside the overcrowded camps.

    Al Jazeera’s Peter Sharp reports from the Russian capital, Moscow.
