A group of 11 prostitutes and their clients were forced to walk naked through the city centre by police before being bundled into police cars. The crying girls' walk of shame, was filmed by passersby in Russia's second city of St Petersburg. It followed a police raid on an illegal brothel in the city's historic Vasilyevsky Island. All of the girls working there and most of their clients were arrested. Three men managed to escape through a back door, Daily Mirror reports.
The group was marched naked for five city blocks before being put into police cars and taken to a police station. An eye-witness said: "Police burst into the building and a little while later left with naked and crying prostitutes."
