A Norwegian anti-Islam group staged a protest on Saturday, culminating in an activist tearing pages from a Quran. The event was wrapped up after a scuffle with counter-protesters, who managed to bypass the police perimeter.
The rally outside the parliament building in Oslo was organized by a group called Stop Islamisation of Norway, or SIAN. Some of their past rallies have ended with clashes between group members and their political opponents. The police had a heavy presence at the scene in advance of Saturday’s event.
The protest escalated into violence when a female activist held up a copy of the Koran and tore pages from the Islamic holy book. Angry counter-protesters then launched an attack, and the police rushed to intervene. One person was reportedly injured, and several others were arrested.
