The United States has voiced concern over the treatment of protesters rounded up in Russia amid major opposition demonstrations to contest the results of parliamentary elections. "We've expressed our concerns about the treatment of all those being arrested who were exercising their rights to peaceful protest," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters on Wednesday. "We would obviously support the rights of anyone to peaceful protest -- emphasis on peaceful -- anywhere in the world," Toner said. "Russia's no different."
