    Two more members of the Russian band Pussy Riot are wanted by police. Three people from the punk group were sentenced to two years in prison last week after being convicted of “hooliganism” for a protest in which they sang a song critical of Vladimir Putin. Five band members wore hoods for the February performance in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral. “The criminal case is ongoing, and a search is underway” for the group’s two other members, said an Interior Ministry spokesperson. It is not clear whether police know the identities of the group’s remaining members. The detention, trial, and conviction of the musicians have drawn widespread outrage and condemnation.
