Anti-Gay Attack Amid Zenit Football Row

Gay rights activists have been attacked outside the Russian parliament - a day after a leading football team was forced to deny it was both homophobic and xenophobic.

Anti-gay activists threw eggs at equality campaigners near the State Duma, before scuffles broke out between the two sides.

Several activists on both sides were detained by police amid the protest against a controversial new bill banning "gay propaganda".
