MOSCOW - Russian investigators on Tuesday opened criminal proceedings related to an opposition protest in Moscow over the weekend and are treating the demonstration as mass civil unrest, the RIA news agency reported.

Russian police rounded up more than 1,000 people in Moscow on Saturday in one of the biggest crackdowns of recent years against an increasingly defiant opposition decrying President Vladimir Putin's tight grip on power.
