Peter Willcox (L), the American captain of a Greenpeace ship, is seen at a court in Murmansk October 14, 2013. Russia denied bail on Monday to Willcox and two other foreign activists who are among 30 environmentalists arrested on charges of piracy over a protest at an Arctic drilling platform. Willcox and activists David John Haussmann, 49, of New Zealand and Camila Speziale, 21, who has Italian and Argentinian citizenship, had appealed against an order that they be held in pre-trial detention until late November.
