Three Femen “sextremists” were arrested in Tunisia on Wednesday after the activist group’s “first topless protest in an Islamic state” euronews reports.
The women — one German and two French — were detained outside the Ministry of Justice in Tunis after revealing their bare chests and holding signs saying “F**k your morals!”
The activists said their actions were in support of Amina Tyler, a 19-year-old Tunisian woman who was arrested after posting topless pictures of herself online as a form of protest.
The Ukraine-founded group, which even has its own training regiment, has held topless protests on a wide variety of issues since 2010.
An angry crowd, apparently including conservative Muslims, jostled with police as officers made the arrests. You can check out a graphic video here –>
