Russian opposition deplores media clampdown

Many journalists claim there is virtually no independent voice left and accuse the Kremlin of censorship.

    Opposition protesters in Russia have come out in force in Moscow to rally against what they say is a government clampdown on media freedom.

    Among the demostrators were a number of journalists who say President Vladimir Putin is increasingly trying to silence freedom of speech.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Sharp reports from Moscow.
