Violence, arrests at Russian gay parade

The parade was unauthorized. But so were the attacks on the participants.

Thousands take to the streets of Moscow for a gay pride parade. Religious zealots took exception. There were scuffles, fisticuffs and arrests.

They were protesting a new law that makes it illegal to promote “homosexual propaganda.”
