Demonstrations were held in over 30 cities around the world on Friday in protest against the Swedish law on prostitution and sex work.

The demonstrations come just a week after a Swedish sex worker was killed by a former partner. The group behind the demonstrations says the Swedish law criminalising buying sex does nothing to protect sex workers.

Luca Stevenson from the The International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe told Radio Sweden: "We are not children. We are adults who have decided to sell sex to make a living."
