Inside Story - The punks, the pulpit and the president

The trial of three members of a Russian punk group is under way for "hooliganism on the grounds of religious hatred". The band has refused to plead guilty but admitted that the show was a mistake. Questions have been raised if this is a suppression of freedom by a repressive president or simply punishment for bad behavior in a holy place. What is it about the case that has got Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, so riled up? Guests: Nina Khrushcheva, John Anderson, Svetlana Svistunova.
