Russian activists to sue Madonna after 'offensive performance'

A group of Russian activists has filed a $10m (€8.1m) lawsuit against Madonna, claiming they were offended by her recent show in St Petersburg.

The nine plaintiffs, including activists from the Trade Union of Russian Citizens, claim they were offended by Madonna's support for gays.

A spokeswoman for the Moscow District Court in Saint Petersburg said it would decide by the end of the week whether to accept the lawsuit.
