Topless women protest against Berlusconi
A group of topless women were dragged away by police on Sunday when they protested against former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as he voted in Italy's election. The protesters, from the Ukrainian women's rights group Femen, shouted "Basta (Enough) Berlusconi", as the media tycoon was voting in a polling station in a Milan school. The same words were painted on their bodies.

 

Police quickly grabbed the women and roughly bundled them away. During the election campaign his centre-left rival Pier Luigi Bersani accused him of treating women like inflatable dolls. (Reuters)
