Moscow Police Enhance Security of US Embassy

Moscow's police have enhanced security measures in the US embassy.

Traffic was blocked in Devyatinsky Lane in the centre of Moscow, the new location of the US diplomatic mission.

Interior forces servicemen and a communications vehicle arrived. The total of 420 people, including OMON (a special purpose police unit) were involved to ensure order, Moscow's GUVD (the Main Interior Affairs Department) reported.

It was reported on Friday that the rally had gathered 500 protestants, a spokesman for the GUVD said.
