LONDON (Reuters) – Activists from environmental group Greenpeace scaled the German embassy in London on Monday, unfurling a giant green banner which called for an end to the use of coal.

At least five activists scaled the building on Belgrave Square with a banner which read: “Exit Coal – Protect Hambach Forest,” according to a Reuters photographer at the scene.
