More than 60,000 protesters gathered in the Swiss capital Bern on Saturday, September 30, demanding tougher policies to combat climate change, organizers said, less than a month ahead of a national election.

Such large protests are rare in Switzerland and show growing public frustration with the pace of policy-making to combat global warming despite ample evidence of its impact.

Switzerland's glaciers have shrunk by 10% in two years, while September was the hottest on record in a country warming at more than twice the global rate.
