Australian protests over Perth's shark cull law

Thousands of people across Australia have joined a protest calling for an end to a new law which allows sharks to be culled.

The biggest gathering took place in Perth, Western Australia, where there have been seven fatal shark attacks in three years.

The government says that the deaths have dented tourism, and that beach-goers must be protected.
