Danish police arrest 23 after protests over anti-Islamic rally

Copenhagen: Danish police said Monday that 23 people had been arrested following violent protests over an anti-Islamic rally at the weekend. Of the 23 arrested Sunday, six were to face pre-trial detention hearings, Copenhagen police said. The protests forced Rasmus Paludan, known for his anti-Islamic rhetoric, to leave within minutes the Copenhagen square in which the rally was held. Counter-protesters continued to throw stones and other items at police, who deployed tear gas. (dpa)
