Protest by topless women

10:34 am on 3 August 2012

Two topless women painted with the slogans "Olympic shame" and "No Sharia" protested in front of City Hall in London on Thursday to draw attention to "bloody Islamist regimes" taking part in the Olympics.

They were members of Femen, a Ukrainian women's rights group, which also protested at the Euro 2012 football tournament in Poland and Ukraine.

Smeared with fake blood and wearing floral wreaths on their heads, the two women ran around the entrance of City Hall for around 10 minutes chased by a third protester, before being covered up and led away by police officers.
