Semi-nude protesters brave Davos chill

Three radical Ukrainian feminists braved the subzero chill at the Swiss ski resort of Davos on Saturday, going topless to protest against the World Economic Forum "gangsters".

The three activists arrived at the security checks at the congress hall's entrance where they undressed, revealing slogans painted across their upper bodies including "Gangster Party in Davos" and "Poor Because of You."

They also brandished signs saying "Crisis Made in Davos" and were arrested after they attempted to scale the metal fences.

The Ukrainian group called Femen, whose slogan is "We Came, We Undressed, We Conquered," specialises in eye-catching stunts in which they protest topless, using their bodies to draw attention to sexual exploitation.

Femen activists have previously protested outside the Parisian home of former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

In November, one activist also managed to sneak past security to partially strip in front of the Vatican's Saint Peter's Basilica just after the pope's Sunday Angelus.
