A jailed member of Russia’s Pussy Riot punk band is said to have gone on hunger strike.

Maria Alyokhina is protesting over not being allowed to be in court for a parole hearing.

She was jailed after performing a “punk prayer” in a Moscow cathedral against Vladimir Putin, during his re-election campaign.
