Thousands of protesters have rallied in Serbia against plans to move the remains of national icon Nikola Tesla.

Tesla was one of the most important inventors in modern history, pioneering AC power, and devices used in radio communication.

A government decree states that his urn should be moved from a museum and buried in an Orthodox Church, but opponents argue Tesla was an atheist, and should be upheld as a figurehead of science, not religion.
