Moscow police detain Pussy Riot member, 6 others

MOSCOW (AP) — Moscow police have detained a member of the Pussy Riot protest group for the second time in a month and a Russian official says he expects she will face drug charges. Veronika Nikulshina, one of the four members of the collective who were jailed last year for a protest at the World Cup soccer final, was taken by police on Wednesday. Group member Pyotr Verzilov said on Twitter that six other acquaintances of hers also have been arrested, including some with no ties to Pussy Riot.
