Anti-Muslim 'hooligan' rally avoids feared riot
A German rally by far-right hooligans against "Islamist extremism" passed off without incident Saturday, amid fears of clashes after violent scenes during a similar rally last month.
Around 3,000 hardline football fans and far-right extremists from across Germany massed in the northern city of Hanover under the banner "Hooligans against Salafists", police said.
Two counter rallies of leftist and anti-fascist protesters drew almost 4,000 people.
