Two police injured as anti-Islam rallies reignite
A demonstration by the Leipzig faction of anti-Islam group Pegida turned violent on Monday, while Dresden saw a sharp increase in Pegida marchers for the first time in months - both bolstered by an increase in refugees in the country.
An estimated 500 people marched for Legida in Leipzig on Monday in a protest that soon devolved into violent clashes, injuring two officers as Legida demonstrators started hurling objects like bottles and fireworks at police.
Another 1,000 counter-protesters also showed up to demonstrate against Legida. Police said that counter-protesters also breached the peace, turning over police barricades and resisting police.
