Pussy Riot trial due to begin in Moscow

The controversial trial is beginning in Moscow of members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot.

The three women have been in prison for five months for briefly singing a political protest song in Moscow's main cathedral.

It is a case that has divided Russia between those who think the women have been treated far too harshly, and those who feel their action grossly offended the Orthodox faith.

Daniel Sandford reports from Moscow.
