Linz's second Pegida demo rings up €250,000
A second protest by Germany's anti-Muslim movement Pegida in the Upper Austrian capital of Linz on Saturday afternoon required a massive police operation in order to prevent clashes breaking out between left-wing counter demonstrators.
The cost of the police operation is estimated to come to more than €250,000, the Kronen Zeitung reports.
698 police officers, two helicopters, dog teams, surveillance officers and special forces from Vienna, Lower Austria, Styria, Salzburg and Tyrol descended on Linz.
