AFP/More than 20,000 Kurds protest against IS in Germany

SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association)-More than 20,000 Kurds protested against the Islamic State group in the western German city of Duesseldorf Saturday, according to the police.

Kurdish organisations called the demonstration to protest attacks by IS jihadist militants on Kurdish towns in Syria, particularly the besiegement of the town of Kobane.

Meanwhile, two people were seriously hurt after radical Muslims attacked a Kurdish demonstration in the west Austrian city of Bregenz, according to a police spokesman.

The attack came after clashes between Kurds and radical Muslims in the northern German cities of Hamburg and Celle left more than 20 people injured earlier this week.

Around 600 people also protested in the eastern French city of Mulhouse, several hundred in the east-central city of Lyon, as well as several hundred in the southwestern city of Bordeaux.
