Dozens rally on Red Square to support Crimean Tatars

More than two dozen people have rallied on Red Square in a rare public protest against the crackdown on Tatars in the Russia-occupied Crimea

The protesters, mostly elderly men, on Wednesday carried posters saying "Our children are not terrorists" and "Stop ethnic and religious repressions in Crimea."

Rights group OVD-Info said seven people have been detained.

Several international and Russian rights groups consider the jailed Crimean Tatars prisoners of conscience.
