Putin foe Navalny to end prison hunger strike on 24th day

MOSCOW (AP) — Imprisoned opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he is ending his hunger strike after getting medical attention and being warned by his doctors that continuing it would put his life at risk. In an Instagram post on  the 24th day of his hunger strike, Navalny said he will continue to demand a visit from his doctor to address numbness in his legs and arms. That was his main demand when launched his hunger strike. But he said he would now start “coming out of the hunger strike.” The 44-year-old politician also acknowledged and thanked the thousands of people who turned out in demonstrations across Russia on Wednesday.
