RUSSIA - Thousands of people rallied in central Moscow on Saturday over the death of three year old Max Shatto.

Some are demanding that U.S. authorities send his half-brother back to Russia.

Max Shatto died back in January.

His adopted mother told police she found him unresponsive outside their home in Gardendale.

Authorities said four doctors reviewed Shatto's autopsy report and agreed his death was accidental.

Russian officials have pointed to the case to defend the country's ban on adoptions by American families.
