Topless protest women jailed

THREE European feminist activists who staged a topless protest in Tunisia last month have been sentenced to four months and a day in prison.

The two French women and German woman were convicted of charges including public indecency, offending public morals and threatening public order.

On May 29, the three women from the Ukrainian feminist group Femen protested topless in front of the court building, calling for the release of a Tunisian member of the group.
