Russian opposition leader Navalny in coma after allegedly being poisoned

A spokeswoman for Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he’s in a coma in hospital after apparently being poisoned.

Navalny was on a flight back to Moscow from the Siberian city of Tomsk when he started feeling unwell, prompting the plane to make an emergency landing.

The lawyer and anti-corruption activist, who is well known for his outspoken criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has served several stints in prison for organising anti-Kremlin protests.
