Unbowed, Navalny calls for more protests

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has called on his supporters to hold protest rallies across the country on June 12.

Navalny, who wants to run for president in 2018, was freed earlier this week from jail.

He spent 15 days behind bars for his role in nationwhide protests last month which ended with more than 1,000 arrests.

June 12 is the annual Russia Day public holiday.
