Germany's controversial anti-immigrant movement PEGIDA has celebrated its first anniversary in Dresden with a big demonstration that attracted some 15,000 people. The controversial movement is against what it calls the Islamization of Europe.
Dozens of Berlin nightclubs have organized a dance party to protest a march led by the far-right Alternative for Germany. "Our party will crash their march," activists promise.
With thousands of "lay judge" positions needing to be filled by next year, far-right groups are calling on their members to apply and "ensure justice" is done. Despite concerns, officials say there's no cause for alarm.
Rain and technical issues dampened a demonstration in Dresden to mark the third anniversary of the anti-Islam movement PEGIDA. Thousands of others held a counter-demonstration "for a Dresden without racism."
PEGIDA founder Lutz Bachmann has landed himself in legal trouble over a tweet about a murdered teenager in Berlin. He posted an image of an "ex-refugee" as her "probable" murderer, but police say he had the wrong guy.
