Russia election protesters ready for Moscow rally

In Moscow, tens of thousands of people are expected to join a massive protest against alleged cheating in recent parliamentary election.

An estimated 50,000 people took part in the last rally two weeks ago, and organisers say they are hoping Saturday's demonstration will be even bigger.

On Thursday President Dmitry Medvedev promised comprehensive political reform, but his words have been met with widespread scepticism.

Daniel Sandford reports from Moscow.
