Thousands protest asylum policy in Dresden
More than 7,000 opponents of Germany's policy towards asylum seekers marched in the eastern city on Monday evening.
Five hundred police officers were deployed to control the march, which drew a counter-demonstration by around 1,000 people. Police closed off key streets to keep the groups separate and avoid potentially violent clashes.
The situation was "markedly more heated than in recent weeks," a police spokesman told news agency dpa.
