Tajik Baby Who Died In Russian Custody Comes Home

A Tajik woman whose baby died while in custody in Russia has flown into to Dushanbe with the baby's body in a casket. Russian authorities took 5-month-old Umarali Nazarov away from his mother, Zarina Yunusova, when she was detained for several hours due to alleged violations of immigration rules. Speaking to RFE/RL's Tajik Service, Yunusova said the baby had been perfectly well before he was taken from her.
