Russian court adjourns Pussy Riot appeal

A Russian court has adjourned the appeal hearing for three activists from the punk band Pussy Riot, after one member of the group decided to replace her legal team.

The women were jailed for two years in August, for staging an anti-Kremlin protest in Moscow's main cathedral, Christ the Saviour.

The appeal hearing in the high-profile case will resume on 10 October.

Steve Rosenberg had more details.
