Russia’s most prominent opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, has been taken from jail to a hospital in Moscow. Officials gave no details of his condition. But Mr. Navalny’s spokeswoman said he had had an allergic reaction with severe facial swelling – something she said he had not experienced before. Mr. Navalny was jailed for 30 days last week after calling for unauthorized protests, which took place yesterday.
