Greek pupils demand Elgin Marbles





Greek schoolchildren have demonstrated at the Acropolis in Athens to demand that the UK returns marble sculptures taken [from the Partenon] by Lord Elgin 200 years ago.

Wearing orange jackets bearing campaign logos, about 2,000 pupils formed a human chain around the monument.

Greece has long campaigned for the marbles' return. But the British Museum says they are better off in London, safe from pollution damage in Athens.
