Russian police arrest LGBT activists in St Petersburg

Russian police detained around 25 gay rights activists who took part in an unsanctioned rally in St Petersburg.

Organisers had said they would stage one-man protests to demand freedom of association after city authorities turned down their request to hold a parade.

A few dozen activists gathered at Palace Square in defiance of a ban on holding the rally.

Police detained campaigners who unfurled rainbow flags or held placards, dragging them into a police bus. 

Russia passed a law in 2013 banning the spreading of gay “propaganda” to harass and intimidate LGBT activists into silence.
