Russian coastguards have taken 30 Greenpeace activists off their ship in the Arctic and detained them in the port of Murmansk.

The activists, who were protesting against oil drilling in the Arctic, were towed for four days in their ship, the Arctic Sunrise.

Russia prosecutors have accused them of piracy after two activists climbed onto the side of an offshore oil platform.
