    Background: LEFT WING DEMONSTRATORS LAST NIGHT (SUNDAY) DAUBED RED PAINT ON ALL BUT TWO OF COPENHAGEN'S EQUESTRIAN STATUES. POLICE INTERRUPTED THE PAINTERS DURING THEIR WORK, BUT THEY MANAGED TO ESCAPE.

    THE PAINTING FOLLOWED DEMONSTRATIONS EARLIER IN THE DAY OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY AND THE SOUTH AFRICAN CONSULATE GENERAL'S OFFICE. THE DEMONSTRATIONS WERE ALLEGED BY THE POLICE TO HAVE BEEN BACKED BY "GROUP 61" - A SEMI- CLANDESTINE LEFTWING ORGANISATION.

    THE EIGHT - ALL IN THEIR TWENTIES - WERE CHARGED WITH DISTURBING THE PEACE. THEY MAY ALSO FACE CHARGES OF INTRUDING ON EXTRA-TERRITORIAL TERRITORY AND CUTTING DOWN THE UNITED STATES FLAGS.
