Protest against new mosque in France
Anti-Muslim protesters gathered at the future site of a mosque in France, saying they did not want new mosque construction on French soil, authorities said.
The extreme right-wing group called Generation Identity climbed to the roof of the building Saturday morning in Poitiers, displaying banners reading "732 generation identity," public television station France 3 reported. The banner is a reference to the year 732, when military leader Charles Martel halted an invading Muslim army from reaching north of Poitiers.
A statement on the group's website says, "We do not want more immigration from outside Europe or new mosque construction on French soil."
