Greenpeace said Canadians Paul Ruzycki (roo-ZIH'-kee) and Alexandre Paul were among a number of activists arrested in the high Arctic after armed Russian Coast Guard officials boarded their ship where Greenpeace had been protesting oil drilling. Greenpeace spokeswoman Christy Ferguson described the mass arrest, which she said took place in international waters. (Ruzycki and Paul were initially charged with piracy, which was punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The charges were reduced to hooliganism, which carried a seven-year prison sentence.)
