Protest leads to 10 arrests AN ANTI-ISLAM demonstration resulted in; WORLDTODAY.

AN ANTI-ISLAM demonstration resulted in 10 arrests, police said.

Officers were attacked with bricks and bottles and had to act fast to stop events escalating, a police spokeswoman added.

Protesters from the Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) group were greeted by anti-fascist groups and local people when they tried to gather outside Harrow Central Mosque in London yesterday afternoon.

Police said there were scenes of disorder and violence as different groups clashed and that the majority of those in the crowd were not members of the local community.
