Amsterdam, MINA -A rally organized on Sunday by a far-right, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant group in Amsterdam did not gather the interest it hoped to receive.
Only 50 people participated in the rally by a little-known group, Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA), according to Anadolu Agency.
The participants marched under police escort, holding racist banners.
A group of counter-protestors from Anti-Fascist Action (AFA) attempted to block the march, resulting in the arrest of three of their members, police said.
On Saturday, PEGIDA members planted 23 crosses on a construction site for a mosque. (T/RS5/RS1)
