Police stop hooligan demo over violence fears
Hanover police said on Friday they would ban a demonstration against fundamentalist Islam which had been registered for November 15th by a hooligan group.
Police chief in the Lower Saxony capital Volker Kluwe said that they had informed the demonstration's organizer in writing after he cancelled a face-to-face meeting with officers.
Kluwe said he was worried that allowing the protest to go ahead could lead to an outbreak of violence like the one two weeks ago in Cologne on October 26th, which saw thousands of hooligans and police battling in the streets.
