    A jailed member of the Russian punk group Pussy Riot has lost her parole battle.

    Nadezhda Tolokonnikova will stay in prison after a regional court upheld an earlier decision not to free her.

    She was jailed after performing a protest against President Vladimir Putin in a Moscow cathedral.
