Russian police have arrested four gay rights activists protesting in St. Petersburg on the opening day of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.  During today's protest, the four activists unfurled a banner quoting the Olympic Charter's ban on any form of discrimination.

A fellow activist says the protesters were quickly rounded up by police. A Russian law banning gay "propaganda'' from reaching minors has drawn strong international criticism and calls for boycott of the Sochi Games from gay activists and others.
