Spain: Rival protesters face off over in Barcelona over mosque opening

Around a dozen far-right anti-Islam demonstrators came face-to-face with a group of counter-protesters on Barcelona’s Japan Street in a demonstration against the opening of a mosque, Saturday. The demonstration, initially set up by local residents, was cancelled yesterday but managed to attract both the far-right and anti-fascists to the area. Police stood on guard, in a politically charged... Еще atmosphere of masked protesters and Nazi salutes, although no violence occurred. Islamophobic tensions have risen in Barcelona following the twin vehicle ramming attack on Las Ramblas and Cambrils last month, claimed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS;formerly ISIL/ISIS).
