Thousands mobilise against far-right rally in Cologne
More than 10,000 people demonstrated in the western German city of Cologne on Sunday in protest against a rally by far-right extremists and football hooligans, an AFP reporter at the scene said.
The counter-demonstrators came from a wide range of groupings, from far-left activists to politicians, representatives of local organisations and a Catholic workers' union, the reporter said.
By contrast, between 800 and 1,000 football hooligans and far-right extremists gathered under the banner "Hooligans against Salafists" or HoGeSa.
