Women on trial in Russia for protesting against Putin:BBC News - Member of Russian band Pussy Riot falls ill at trial
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Mariya Alekhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich were taken into custody in February after performing a protest song against President Vladimir Putin at Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral.

The song outraged the Russian Orthodox Church, which accused them of blasphemy. Supporters say the case reflects the state's growing intolerance of government opponents.
