A court in the Russian city of Berezniki has rejected an appeal by Maria Alyokhina, a jailed member of the Pussy Riot punk activist group. Alyokhina had asked the court to let her serve the rest of her prison sentence after her 5-year-old son turns 14. Speaking at the hearing, Alyokhina said her experience in prison had been similar to episodes from the novels of "Gogol, Kafka, and Orwell." (Reuters)
