Climate activists march outside UN talks in Qatar


Al-Akhbar, Doha, Qatar

A few hundred people have marched in a peaceful demonstration for "climate justice" in Doha, where negotiators from nearly 200 countries are debating about how to slow the onset of global warming and help protect the most vulnerable countries from rising seas and other impacts of climate change.

The march was billed as the first environmental rally ever in the wealthy emirate, which is hosting the two-week UN talks aimed at forging a global deal to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases.
