Sochi: The two members of Russian punk group Pussy Riot who were released from prison colonies late last year said they had both been arrested Tuesday in downtown Sochi during the Olympic Games.

"We have been arrested... and are accused of robbery," Pussy Riot member Nadzehda Tolokonnikova wrote on her Twitter account. 

Her bandmade Maria Alyokhina confirmed she had also been arrested. They were arrested in central Sochi, some 30 kilometres north of the main Olympic venues.
