Greenpeace protest lack of EU climate change funds

Dozens of Greenpeace activists are protesting outside a meeting of EU finance ministers to demand more funding to help developing nations combat climate change.
Police detained several protesters who tried to jump over a perimeter fence and get into the building.
The finance ministers had no trouble getting inside for their meeting and are not scheduled to leave until Tuesday afternoon.
The Greenpeace activists said they want the 27 EU finance ministers to give African and other developing nations special budgets to start tackling climate change.
Next week's summit of EU government leaders will discuss funding for climate change.
