Animal rights campaigners in China have handed in a petition with 11 million signatures calling for an end to an annual dog-eating festival in the south-west of the country.

Activists want to stop the consumption of dog meat at the festival in the southern city of Yulin which is due to begin later this month.

Correspondents say animal rights is a growing concern in China. There have been frequent calls to treat animals more humanely.

About 24 activists accompanied by their dogs handed in the petition at the representative office of Yulin city in the Chinese capital, Beijing. They unfurled banners with pictures of their pets alongside the message: "I'm not your dinner."
