Submission + - Former chess champion Kasparov arrested at rally

vertinox writes: From the BBC: 'Police have arrested Russian opposition leader Garry Kasparov at a banned anti-Kremlin rally in Moscow. He was detained during a huge security operation to prevent protesters from gathering at Pushkin Square. Police deny reports he has now been freed. The former chess champion leads the United Civil Front group, part of the opposition coalition Other Russia.'

BBC has also run a profile on Mr Kasparov's political aspirations.

For those who may not remember Garry Kasparov was the 1984 World Chess Champion and also played Deep Blue in 1997 and lost.

It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions. - Robert Bly
