Schalke - Environmental protesters briefly interrupted the Champions League match
between Basel and Schalke 04 on Tuesday when they dropped down on cables
from the stadium roof and unfurled a huge yellow Greenpeace banner, Supersport.com reports.
Play was halted for around five minutes when four protesters wearing
orange boiler suits and helmets descended slowly on ropes which they had
dropped from the roof after a few minutes of play.
The banners said "Gazprom, don't foul the Artic" and "Free the Artic 30"
and had Greenpeace written at the bottom. The protestors then hauled
themselves back onto the roof while officials watched from the touchline
and the match continued.
