Right-wing protesters fail to disrupt pro-Palestinian march
by Fiona Hamilton
Right-wing protesters failed in their attempts to disrupt a pro-Palestinian march in central London on Sunday.
The English Defence League, an anti-Islam fringe group, sought to confront an annual pro-Palestinian march through the city, but only mustered about 30 supporters.
Police kept the group away from hundreds demonstrating against Israel's control of Jerusalem as part of the annual "al-Quds day" (Jerusalem day) march.
A handful of the right-wing activists marched through Piccadilly Circus in the centre of the city's shopping district shouting "Muslim scum off our streets" before they were barricaded into a small area by police, while the pro-Palestinian supporters marched past.
