Koran burning in Arnhem gets completely out of hand, Pegida leader injured after storming angry crowd | Abroad

More than a hundred demonstrators – mainly Muslims – gathered in the city center of Arnhem on Saturday afternoon for a counteraction against the announced Koran burning that would take place at 2 p.m. They were ordered by the police to leave Jansplein. But the counter-protesters ignored that.

Before the situation got out of hand, Wagensveld was seen by counter-protesters on the corner of the square in Arnhem. About 25 of them walked up to the Pegida leader, and the police quickly intervened. The police have made several arrests. The Koran that Wagensveld tried to burn was left behind on the Gele Rijdersplein.
