Protest held against Athens mosque plan
Members of the ultra-right National Front have led dozens of protesters in a march against the Greek government's plans to build the first state-funded mosque in Athens, the capital.
The government has budgeted about one million euros ($1.3m) to build the mosque at a reduced price because of the country's economic crisis, which has delayed the process. However, construction was expected to begin next year.
The protesters, including a woman dressed in nun's clothing, waved Greek flags at the rally on Sunday as they shouted: "We don't want sharia, we want Greece and Orthodoxy" and "No to mosques, give money to the schools."
