Freed Greenpeace activists arrive home

Twenty-five activists have now left Russia after prisoner amnesty led to the dropping of charges.

    The "Arctic 30" faced the possibility of seven years in prison after attempting to board a Russian oil platform, but a recently approved amnesty law resulted in all charges being dropped.

    The freed activists were relieved to be home, as they described being held in cold, rat-infested Russian cells for weeks.
