Russian girl band Pussy Riot deny hooliganism charge

All three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot have pleaded not guilty to charges of hooliganism, after they sang a political protest song in Moscow's main cathedral.

It is a case that has divided Russia.

Some think that the women have been treated too severely and others feel their actions grossly offended the Orthodox faith.

Daniel Sandford reports from Moscow.
