A spokeswoman says Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is in satisfactory condition after being hospitalized for a severe allergy attack while in jail.

Navalny was taken to a hospital Sunday morning from the Moscow detention facility where he is serving a 30-day sentence for calling an unsanctioned protest against the exclusion from the ballot of independent Moscow City Council candidates.

His spokeswoman, Kira Yarmysh had said Navalny did not have a history of allergies and arrived at the hospital with severe facial swelling and red skin rashes.
