Day after clashes - Peaceful demos in Rostock

Text size Aa Aa

In the Northern German city of Rostock, demonstrations against the forthcoming G8 summit took on a more peaceful tone, compared to the violent skirmishes of yesterday.

Demonstrators protested about the influence the world’s eight richest countries have on farming; in particular, they say, genetically modified crops destroy small farmers.

The world leaders gather in nearby Heiligendamm on Wednesday.
