‘Batons & Horses: Dutch police disperse Anti-Fascist demo at PEGIDA march’

Scuffles broke out between police and hundreds of people taking part in a counter-protest against a demonstration organised by the far-right, anti-Muslim group PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West) in Groningen, Sunday.

Police officers on horseback used batons on counter-protesters, which reportedly included members of the GroenLinks party. There were no reported arrests or injuries.
