Protests at Pussy Riot verdict

Human rights activists have taken to the streets in support of rock band Pussy Riot after they were found guilty of hooliganism in Moscow.

Crowds of banner-waving supporters protested outside Russia's embassy in London's Kensington Palace Gardens and masked demonstrators also protested in O'Connell Street, Dublin's main thoroughfare.

Three female bandmembers face up to seven years in jail when they are sentenced later today (Friday) for hooliganism driven by religious hatred and offending religious believers.

The trio were arrested in March after an unauthorised performance in Moscow's main cathedral calling for the Virgin Mary to protect Russia against leader Vladimir Putin.

Several celebrities have publicly supported the band members, including Sting and Madonna.

Sir Paul McCartney wrote to the rockers, telling them to "stay strong" and saying he would do everything in his power to help.
