(Reuters)—A Russian court on Monday adjourned an appeal hearing for three members of the Pussy Riot punk band against their conviction for a protest against President Vladimir Putin in a church after one of the trio sacked her lawyers.

About a hundred people—Pussy Riot supporters in colourful T-shirts as well as mainly elderly Russian Orthodox Christians—filled corridors of the Moscow court and others stood outside.
