Sweden "counter-jihad" rally outnumbered by anti-racists
by Anna Ringstrom
A Stockholm rally by European and U.S. far-right groups seeking to create a global "counter-jihad" movement attracted fewer than 200 people on Saturday who were outnumbered by anti-racist protesters.
Police said the rival demonstration was kept apart from the far-right rally and drew a few hundred people, a small number of whom were detained.
The far-right rally was organized by groups including the English Defence League (EDL) which has been a driving force behind a handful of similar events, most recently a Danish rally in March.
