Thousands march in Paris against Islamophobia after attack
By Editor - Sun Nov 10, 10:54 am
Thousands marched through Paris on Sunday in an anti-Islamophobia demonstration that has divided France’s political class. Organisers said they had called the rally in a sign of support two weeks after a man with far-right connections fired shots in a mosque in the southwestern city of Bayonne, injuring two elderly men. Members of hard-left parties took part in the march – though some others in the centre stayed away saying it threatened France’s tradition of secularism, and far right leader Marine Le Pen said the event had been organised by Islamists.
