Thousands Join Nemtsov Memorial March In Moscow

Tens of thousands of people joined a march in the heart of Moscow organized by Russia's opposition in memory of slain Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov. Organizers of the event said about 70,000 people marched in Moscow on March 1, while Russian police said only about 7,000 people were involved. The march began after thousands of people piled flowers on the bridge near the Kremlin where the opposition politician and former deputy prime minister was shot dead late on February 27.
