Reading Time: < 1 minute

Russian police say they have dropped a criminal case against an investigative journalist amid claims he was framed.

Euronews reports how Ivan Golunov, known for his work probing corruption, was arrested last week after law enforcement said they found drugs on him.

The 36-year-old was charged over the weekend with trying to illegally sell drugs.

His case sparked public outcry and three Russian newspapers published identical front-page headlines to protest his detention.
