(Iran's Environment News Agency) Eight Greenpeace activists have been taken into custody by police after they staged an elaborate protest at the Global Energy conference in Geneva.
The eight activists were dressed up as polar bears wading in oil-soaked snow.


Greenpeace said Tuesday's protest was in response to Gazprom drilling in the arctic in mid-December, despite the fact it had no comprehensive oil spill response plan.
According to AFP, the eight activists were taken into custody for questioning.

Geneva police spokesman Jean-Philippe Brandt reportedly told AFP it was unclear how long they would be held.

A spokeswoman for Greenpeace could not confirm if the activists were taken into custody. Greenpeace Switzerland arctic campaigner Asti Roesle said the drilling in the Arctic was one of the biggest concerns for Greenpeace.
