Police detained Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny just before a mass protest against corruption in central Moscow was expected to take place.

He was arrested at the entrance of his home today, his wife wrote on his Twitter account, posting a photo of him getting into a police car.

"Hello. This is Yulia Navalnaya ... Alexei has been detained in the stairwell," she wrote.

The protest will still go ahead, she added.
