Police check footage from Pegida debut
Austrian police have said they are examining video footage and photos from Vienna's first Pegida march after some supporters were seen performing Nazi salutes on Monday evening.
If police can identify any individuals they can be charged under Austria's Prohibition Act, which aims to suppress a potential revival of Nazism.
The 400 Pegida supporters who marched on Monday evening were dwarfed by a colourful counter-demonstration more than ten times larger, according to police estimates.
