    Thousands of Orthodox Christian worshippers have turned out in the Russian capital Moscow for a prayer to support the controversial Church in what it perceives to be an attack on its authority.

    They refer to a confrontation involving Pussy Riot, a local punk rock band who took over the capital's main cathedral to sing their songs in a political statement in February.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from the Russian capital.
