The father of a US soldier whose funeral was picketed by the controversial Westboro Baptist Church has been told he must pay their legal fees of $16,500 US (£11,000).

The Kansas-based church, headed by Fred Phelps and his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper, was sued for $5 million for invasion of privacy and emotional distress after it picketed the funeral of Marine lance corporal Matthew Snyder in Maryland.

The Phelps family are known for picketing the funerals of US soldiers with slogans such as 'God hates fags'. They believe that soldiers' deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan are caused by God because he hates homosexuality.
