Swiss cities march against minaret ban
Up to 8,000 people in the French-speaking part of Switzerland took to the streets on Tuesday evening to protest against the minaret ban.
Voters accepted a ban on the construction of minarets in a referendum on Sunday by 57.5 per cent.
A march in Lausanne attracted up to 5,000 supporters, while a demonstration in Geneva was attended by more than 2,000 people, with smaller protests taking place in other towns.
