Neo-Nazi protest against planned mosque in Leipzig

When the call came into the Leipzig fire department late Thursday, it sounded routine: A small refuse fire in a dumpster. But the location was a bit odd, on the site of what is planned as the first mosque to be built in the former East Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall. And, when firefighters arrived, there was a small trash fire, but the situation next to that was anything but routine: Five severed pig heads, on stakes and driven into the future mosque’s ground, above a trough of what appeared to be pig blood.
