(Newser) – Pussy Riot's band members are sealed away in a labor camp, and a Moscow court is looking to similarly vanquish video of their controversial "punk prayer" performance into the ether. The court today ruled that the clip should be removed from the web, reports the AP, with the ruling judge saying that the video caused "mass disorder" and contains "elements of extremism. In particular there are words and actions which humiliate various social groups based on their religion," he said, according to CNBC.
