Apple removed Russia opposition app after arrest threats: source

Apple removed an opposition strategic voting app from its online marketplace under pressure from Russian authorities, including threats to arrest local staff of the tech giant, a source familiar with the company's decision told AFP on Friday. 

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said official threats escalated to the point that the app was pulled at the start of a three-day parliamentary election in Russia.
