.Briton Kieron Bryan, a Greenpeace International commissioned freelance videographer, attends a bail hearing at the Regional Court of Murmansk October 11, 2013. Two Britons held in Russia for a Greenpeace protest were ordered to remain in pre-trial detention on Friday, a defeat for the first of the many foreigners among the 30 detainees to seek bail.
