    A number of Greenpeace activists and a photographer accompanying them have been remanded in pre-trial custody by a Russian court after a criminal case was opened for suspected piracy.

    The campaigners could face 15 years in jail if convicted over the protest they staged at Russia's first offshore oil platform in the Arctic.
