Russia: Sentencing brings new protests, arrests

A Russian court on Monday handed down prison sentences of up to four years to seven anti-Putin protesters, including a 22-year-old student who investigators said threw an "unidentified yellow object of spherical shape" at a line of riot police. Hundreds of their supporters gathered outside the courtroom to condemn the trial and the Kremlin's crackdown on opposition since Putin returned to the presidency. About 200 people, including two members of the punk band Pussy Riot who spent nearly two years in prison for their own anti-Putin protest, were briefly detained by police outside court.
