Lawyer Patrick Klugman representing Femen activists in their Paris trial for charges of damaging the Notre Dame cathedral has requested more information over violence perpetuated against his clients.


One of the nine activists standing trial was forcibly removed from the central Paris cathedral last February and suffered a broken tooth.

This was the first trial against Femen in France.
