Olympics-Topless women stage London protest

Five French activists of the Ukrainian women’s rights movement Femen carried out a topless protest on Thursday morning , August 2 against the International Olympic Committee (IOC) outside City Hall near the Tower Bridge in Central London , as they believe that (IOC) support bloody Islamist regimes by allowing them to participate in the London 2012 Olympics reports IBTimes UK and Mail Online.

The topless activists ran through the streets of Central London - “marathon-Islamic” described by the activists - wearing only knickers and painting slogans "Olympic shame" and "No Sharia" on their bare chests , reports Reuters.

Femen released a statement on its Facebook page read : " Femen requires the states that apply the laws of sharia be shut out of the Olympic games, because of the inhumanity of these laws, which are in total contradiction with Olympic principles that are peace and philanthropy." "Femen accuses these states of simulating democratic changes regarding the position of women".

British officers immediately covered the topless activists with sheets and detained them.
