LONDON - Four women chained themselves to the pulpit in St Paul's Cathedral on Sunday in support of the anti-corporate Occupy London movement, before cutting themselves free after being threatened with arrest, London police said.

The women from the Occupy London and Christianity Uncut movements said their four-hour protest was also a show of support for the Russian punk band Pussy Riot.

London Occupy, part of an international movement inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protest that began last September, has protested against bankers' bonuses and what they say is corporate greed.
