About 2,000 people have protested against a church being built on a park square in Yekaterinburg in Russia. Twenty-six people were arrested during Tuesday’s clashes and there were further protests on Wednesday.

Activists say building St Catherine’s Cathedral on the square will destroy one of the city’s few green spaces.

The Russian Orthodox Church says it needs new churches to replace the many buildings destroyed under Soviet anti-religion laws.
