20 anti-Pegida Demonstrators Arrested at Pegida Demonstration in Amsterdam
The anti-Islam organization Pegida arranged a demonstration in Amsterdam on Saturday afternoon, coordinated with demonstrations in London, Dublin and Prague on the same day. Left-wing protesters mounted a counter-demonstration. Some of them tried to force their way into the Pegida ranks. Police arrested 20 people, most of whom from among the counter-protesters. They were released the next day. The Pegida demonstration had to be relocated from its original site due to a suspicious explosive device. Police believe the device was planted by counter-protesters. Police eventually called a halt to the Pegida demonstration.
