Hundreds Join Czech Anti-Islam Rally

Hundreds of people have joined a demonstration in Prague organized by a group calling itself "We Don't Want Islam In The Czech Republic." The protestors said they wanted to protect Czech traditions from Islam, which they connected with terrorism. A member of Parliament for an opposition party addressed the crowd, suggesting that an amendment to legislation on religions could be used to achieve this. Around twenty people joined a counter-demonstration. (RFE/RL)
