Pussy riot in custody

Members of the all-girl punk band 'Pussy Riot.' Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (L), Maria Alyokhina (R) and Yekaterina Samutsevich (C), sit during a court hearing in Moscow on July 30, 2012. In February, five women walked silently into Moscow's Church of Christ the Saviour before clambering over railings, pulling on balaclavas, and singing out a protest song against Vladimir Putin. The three have already spent four months in jail awaiting trial .
