Navalny’s ’tortured’ body handed over to his mother

The body of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who died unexpectedly in prison nine days ago, was handed over to his mother on Saturday in the remote Arctic city of Salekhard, his spokeswoman said. 

In a video recorded before the release of the body, Navalny's widow Yulia Navalnaya accused "demonic" Russian President Vladimir Putin of "torturing" the corpse of a political opponent.
