Russia urged to free environmental activists

Up to 100 protests held worldwide demanding release of Greenpeace ship's crew members detained on piracy charges.

    Protests have been held from Moscow to Melbourne during a global day of action in support of Greenpeace environmental activists being held by Russia.

    They were on board a ship which was seized last month after crew members tried to climb onto a Russian oil rig in Arctic waters.

    Al Jazeera's Kim Vinnell reports from London.
