Anti-Islam activists scale Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate in hour-long protest calling for ‘secure borders’ in Germany

Far-right anti-Islam activists staged an hour-long protest on top of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate today calling for ‘secure borders’ in Germany.

The protesters unfurled a banner reading ‘Secure Borders – Secure Future’ on the iconic monument as crowds of tourists milled around beneath them.

Police said 15 people were briefly detained over the protest and are likely to face charges of trespassing, harassment and breaching laws on public assembly.
