Anti-capitalism protesters have brought havoc to central Geneva during a demonstration against the World Trade Organisation.

They burned cars and faced up to riot police in a zone near the central bus station of the Swiss town. They also smashed the windows of shops, bank and cafés. The violent protesters were a fringe minority on an otherwise peaceful march of some 2000 people ahead of a three day conference of the World Trade Organisation which starts on Monday. They accuse the WTO of not doing enough to tackle climate change, claiming it is a mouthpiece for the interests of multinational corporations.
