Clashes broke out between police and protesters after around 4,000 people took to the streets of Stuttgart on Sunday against PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West). Several hundred police officers were on duty to control any outbreaks of violence between the two groups. Authorities were forced to escort many members of the right-wing group to their protest venue as smoke bombs, eggs and apples were thrown from behind barriers and police lines.
