A Moscow court ordered Friday that three young female members of the Pussy Riot punk group on trial for staging an anti-Vladimir Putin concert in Moscow's best known church should stay in jail until January.
 
The Khamovnichesky court ruled that the pre-trial detention of the trio -- who have been under arrest since March -- should be extended for another six months, satisfying a prosecution request, an AFP correspondent reported.
