MOSCOW, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Video clips posted on the Internet that appeared to show fraud in Russia's parliamentary elections were heavily edited, an official said Thursday.

Vladimir Churov, head of the Central Election Commission, said the video has been vetted by experts from the Interior Ministry, RIA Novosti reported. He said they found "signs of in-frame and inter-frame editing."

There have been large demonstrations since the elections with Churov accused of conniving at ballot stuffing and other fraud.

In an interview with Ekho Muscovy, a radio station, Churov said the experts' work suggests the clips are not proof of any fraud.
