Anti-Islam demo turnout up - but not by much
A record 17,500 protestors turned up in Dresden on Monday night to protest against the supposed Islamification of Germany, according to police figures.
However, the figure was well down on the 30,000 that organisers of the Pegida (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamification of the West) had hoped to reach in a Facebook posting late Monday.
It also represents a slight slowing in the growth of the group, who in the past two weeks had gone from 10,000 to 15,000 demonstrators.
