Russia 'seizes' Greenpeace ship after Arctic rig protest
Greenpeace says 29 activists, including six Britons, are being held at gunpoint by Russian security officers who stormed the group's ship in the Arctic.
One of the activists told the BBC that about 15 men in balaclavas seized the Arctic Sunrise ship in the Barents Sea.
This comes a day after four Greenpeace members tried to board a Russian oil platform to prevent it from drilling.
The group says this threatens a unique and fragile environment - a claim denied by Moscow.
Speaking to the BBC on Thursday, one activist on the ship said Greenpeace members were being held in the galley of the Arctic Sunrise, while the captain was being detained on the bridge.
The activist said he believed the armed men were members of Russia's internal security service, the FSB.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24170129Maybe not a good idea to jump on a Russian oil platform. Maybe they should go after rogue vineyards in France or the illicit comic book cartels.
