After Copenhagen shootings, Norway's Muslims and Jews link up
Norwegian Muslims organised a peace vigil in Oslo Saturday in a show of solidarity with Jews a week after fatal shootings in Denmark targeted a synagogue and free speech seminar.
As the small mainly elderly Jewish congregation filed out of the synagogue after Shabbat prayers, a group of young Muslims, many of them teenage girls wearing headscarves, formed a symbolic ring outside the building to roaring applause from a crowd of more than 1,000 people.
"This shows that there are many more peacemakers than war-makers," 37-year-old Zeeshan Abdullah, one of the organisers told the crowd.
