PHOTOS: Protesters support jailed band at Russian Embassy

Members of the band Brenda donned balaclavas during their performance at the solidarity concert for Pussy Riot, a Russian band jailed for protesting the rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Frank Jannuzi (left), deputy executive director of Amnesty International, said AIUSA applied for a permit to hold the performance here. A handful of D.C. police officers stood watch nearby and the music could be heard from a few blocks away.
