Video: Russia migrants 'harassed'

Migrants accuse Russian police of arresting them, and forcing them to pay bribes.



    Eighty per cent of the estimated 12 million immigrants to Russia have flocked to the country from former Soviet Union countries in search of work and better opportunities.

    But some say they have since fallen victim to police harassment and corruption, and some migrants have accused Russian police of arresting, searching and forcing them to pay bribes.

    Casey Kauffman reports from the outskirts of Moscow on one young couple, who say they fear deportation despite their legal status in the country.
