From fairytale to nightmare as Little Mermaid doused in red paint

The cleaning of Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid statue, which authorities say was vandalised by anti-whaling activists, features in our pictures of the day for Tuesday, May 30.

Denmark’s most-famous landmark was covered in red paint with a reference made to whaling in the Faroe Islands.

Whaling is allowed near the islands, which lie between Iceland and Denmark, and are a self-governing territory of the latter.

Also among our best images from today are taxi drivers in Madrid protesting against Uber and Cabify, which they say represent unfair competition.
