(AP) Three women AIDS activists saying they wanted to highlight the naked truth about potential spending cuts in HIV programs have been arrested after taking their clothes off in the lobby of House Speaker John Boehner's office.


The trio had the words AIDS cuts kill painted on their bodies and had linked arms with four men who also disrobed as part of the protest. The three women were arrested by Capitol Police as they mingled with other protesters in the hall outside Boehner's district office after putting their clothes back on.


The protest occurred as congressional leaders and President Barack Obama seek a deal to avert automatic spending cuts and tax increases in January. A coalition of AIDS activist groups gathering in Washington for Saturday's World AIDS Day organized the protest.
