HELSINKI - A rally in support of the Pussy Riot punk band was held outside the Russian Embassy in Helsinki, Finland, on Wednesday. 

Three women wearing balaclavas took their tops off, baring their breasts, at around 12:30 p.m. Moscow time. Each one of them had a word written on their body, which together read: "Free Pussy Riot."

The young women were talking to one another and to passers-by in Finnish, referring to themselves as "representatives of the creative class," eyewitnesses said.

Soon afterwards police arrived, checked their documents and ordered them to leave.
