    Thousands of people have demonstrated in Moscow against a proposed demolition of 10 percent of the Russian capital's low-cost housing stock.

    The government plans to demolish almost 5,000 five-storey buildings from the Soviet era.

    More than a million residents will need to be relocated if the government goes ahead with the city's plans.

    Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker reports from Moscow.
