Pussy Riot protester alone in cell after inmate tension

Jailed Pussy Riot punk protester Maria Alyokhina has been moved to a single-person cell for her own protection because of tension with other prisoners, her lawyer and Russia’s federal penitentiary service said on Friday. Alyokhina, 24, is serving a two-year sentence for a raucous protest against President Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s main Russian Orthodox cathedral. Activists said her trial, and that of two band mates, was part of a crackdown on dissent.
