Femen protest ahead of Tunisia visit to EU

BRUSSELS (AP) — Bare-breasted members of the feminist group Femen targeted the motorcade of Tunisian Prime Minister Ali Larayedh to protest the jailing of group members in Tunis.

As the Tunisian motorcade left following a visit to European Union headquarters on Tuesday, two women climbed atop a diplomatic car and two others chanted slogans.

Security officials dragged the women off the car, and all four ran away from the scene.

Early this month, a Tunisian court sentenced three Femen activists who staged a topless protest to four months and a day in prison.
