Police in Leeds, UK Keep 2 Angry Demos Apart
More than 2,000 demonstrators gathered in the UK city of Leeds amid a heavy police presence as a group staged a protest against Islamic extremism.
Police said about 900 English Defence League (EDL) supporters joined the rally in City Square. They were penned in by a ring of officers.
A rival protest of up to 1,500 Unite Against Fascism (UAF) supporters took place nearby in Victoria Gardens.
Five people were arrested for minor public order offences.
The EDL supporters were escorted back to the nearby railway station once the rally ended.
However, about 500 UAF supporters remained under police observation in the Victoria Gardens area.
Hundreds of police officers were brought into the city to act as a barrier between the rival protesters.
Officers feared there could be disorder and urged young Muslims and students to avoid getting involved in any trouble.
