Russian security forces attack Pussy Riot members

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Cossack militia attacked the Pussy Riot punk group with horsewhips today as the group tried to perform under a sign advertising the Sochi Olympics. Six group members – five women and one man – donned their signature ski masks and were pulling out a guitar and microphone as at least 10 Cossacks and other security officials moved in. One Cossack appeared to use pepper spray, another whipped several group members while others ripped off their masks and threw the guitar into a garbage can.
