Pavel Dmitrichenko, a dancer at Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, has testified in court that he did not plan an acid attack against the theater's artistic director, Sergei Filin. Dmitrichenko earlier indicated that he arranged for an accomplice to attack Filin, but he said on March 7 that there was no talk of throwing acid at him. The acid attack in January left Filin with facial burns and damage to both eyes. (Reuters video)
