UK peace activist Brian Haw dies of cancer

British protester who camped outside parliament for 10 years dies aged 62.

    Brian Haw, one of the most recognisable figures in the British anti-war movement, has died.

    Haw set up camp outside the UK parliament in 2001 to protest against British and US foreign policy, staying there for 10 years.

    Exposing the plight of victims of Britain's policies, Haw remained a thorn in the side of UK politicians who used legislation to him move out of the immediate vicinity of the parliament.
