Anti-Islam rallies reach Denmark's streets

Country generally seen as tolerant witnesses its first PEGIDA-organised rallies after Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.

    PEGIDA, or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident, began in Germany with a few hundred supporters attending its rallies against Islam - before and after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. The group has since steadily spread out around Europe, even in tolerant Denmark.

    Supporters turned out in Copenhagen carrying torches and signs against the violence the world has witnessed in France.

    Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from the Danish capital Copenhagen.
