Injuries as Spartak Moscow fans clash with police

A number of people have been injured in central Moscow as some football fans protesting over the killing of a fellow supporter clashed with security forces.

The Spartak Moscow fans gathered near the Kremlin following the shooting dead of Yegor Sviridov earlier this week.

Police used baton charges to break up the protesters, who included Russian nationalists chanting slogans such as "Russia for Russians".

The injured reportedly included members of ethnic minorities from the Caucasus region, who were attacked by demonstrators.
