Russian police raid Pussy Riot play in Moscow as part of 'anti-Western campaign'

Russian police raided a play featuring the trial of the three members of punk collective Pussy Riot, in what a government critic said was part of an anti-Western campaign promoted by President Putin.

Moscow officers interrupted the performance in central Moscow, and cautioned the Swiss director for violating visa rules, earlier today.

The play features the recent trials of three members of Pussy Riot for staging a profanity-laced protest in Moscow's main cathedral last February.
