US Olympic basketball star ‘wrongfully detained’ in Russian jail

Basketball star Brittney Griner is being “wrongfully detained” in Russia, the US says.

A double gold Olympian, Griner was detained at Moscow airport in February after Russian authorities said a search of her bag revealed vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis.
