Thousands of people marched in Paris on Sunday against an anti-Islamophobia rally that divided French political parties.

Organizers said they called it a gesture of support two weeks after a far-right man opened fire at a mosque in the southwestern French city of Bayonne, wounding two elderly men.

Members of the far-left parties took part in the march, although others in the centrist parties did not, saying it threatened French secular traditions.

“Stop all forms of racism” and “Islamophobia is not an opinion but a crime”, protesters marched through the streets of Paris.
