Serbian pride parade cancelled

A gay pride parade in Serbia has been cancelled after the authorities said they could not guarantee the participants' safety.

It would have been the first in the country since the 2001 parade ended in violence when football hooligans attacked marchers.

Mark Lowen reports from Belgrade.
