Anti-war protesters demonstrated at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Saturday at the annual Nato parliamentary assembly.

Organisers said around 5,000 people took part in the No to Nato demo, with the CND, Scottish Afghan Society and STW UK joining the event.

The group marched along East Market Street before holding a rally in West Princes Street Gardens.

Stop the War Coalition Scotland called for troops to be withdrawn from Afghanistan and for Trident to be scrapped.
