Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny yesterday launched a hunger-strike against his conditions in a notorious Russian penal colony. The journalist-politician demands proper medical treatment for severe back pain and numbness in his legs.

Serving a 2.5-year sentence for not meeting bail conditions – he was in a Berlin hospital being treated for Novichok nerve poisoning – said he was losing sensation in both legs.
