Russian activist sent from hospital back to jail
Russian opposition activist on hunger strike sent back to jail after hospital visit
By The Associated Press

MOSCOW (AP) ' Supporters say a Russian opposition activist on a hunger strike has been sent back to jail without receiving proper medical attention.

Sergei Udaltsov, the leader of the Left Front movement, has been on a hunger strike for three days. He fell ill Saturday in a courtroom where he was appealing a 10-day arrest for disobeying police orders.

The Left Front said in a statement on its website Sunday that supporters called an ambulance and sent him to a hospital. It says medical authorities did not examine him properly and refused to admit him.

Udaltsov was detained Wednesday when he tried to lead a march to the presidential compound in Moscow following an authorized rally. Udaltsov has been detained at least ten times this year.
