Pussy Riot 60 Minutes video: Lesley Stahl interviews defiant punk rock band

According to the Associated Press Moscow's highest court panel recently rejected an appeal by three members of the punk band Pussy Riot against their hooliganism conviction following a protest against Vladimir Putin.

Last year CNN reported that the Pussy Riot members were charged after screaming, "Mother Mary, please drive Putin away," in a protest act in February inside Christ Savior Cathedral, one of Moscow's grandest houses of worship.

Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova were given two-year sentences last August. Samutsevich was released on appeal, but her conviction was not overturned, the AP said.
 
Sunday 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl reported on the band.
