people arrested by police in a weekend of unrest that mars the start of putin's fourth term in office. let's bring indeed obvious emily sure what has been at one of the protests in russia's capital moscow and really good to see you let's go back to say what was the the atmosphere there at the protests today. well the atmosphere i would say was was tense from the beginning even as the demonstrators assembled on pushkin square in the center of moscow there were actually putin supporters waiting for them who basically started a shouting match with them they were shouting for putin and the demonstrators assembling there were shouting for russia without putin and were shouting against putin and soon after that the arrests started there were groups of riot police out in force basically grabbing people out of the crowd and putting them into police
8:04 pm
vans now there was some defiance among the protesters as well after the police cleared the square some of them kind of returned to the square and kept assembling around the pushkin monument on the on the center at the center of the square as police kept arresting them as well now police here say that three hundred people were arrested just in moscow observers say the number is more likely to be around six hundred now it's worth noting that the protest here wasn't authorized but protests also took place in several other cities in fact around ninety cities today people came out in support of not me and some of those protests were authorized but there were arrests across the board. when terms of demographics who is out there process and today was there one discernible young or old type of person who is in red square there pushkin square.
8:05 pm

8:06 pm
when the police will arrest him what was unusual about today's protests is that the police kind of let him get all the way to the square and in fact the footage shows him kind of being dragged off in front of protesters so it was almost like he was being shown off perhaps as a deterrent to the protesters there but certainly it seemed to me that after he was arrested the mood kind of changed there were suddenly a lot more police presence in the center of moscow and the arrests really started and they started clearing the square even on the side streets just off of the square people were being arrested and being kind of moved further and further away from the square sometimes rather violently and emily sure win for us in moscow thank you very much for your reporting. the u.s. space agency nasa has launched its latest probe to mars a powerful atlas five rocket is propelling the mars insite lander to the planet's
