Topless women target Putin in protest

Topless women protesters in Germany have shouted at Russian president Vladimir Putin as he toured a trade fair in Germany.

Three women bared their breasts and shouted "dictator" before being quickly bundled away by security officers.

Mr Putin, who was at the event in Hannover with German Chancellor Angel Merkel, spoke about the incident at news conference:

"As regards the stunt - I liked it. By and large, we knew that such a stunt was being prepared. I didn't catch what they were saying."

The BBC's Stephen Evans reports.
