A protestor with a candle opposing the PEGIDA movement attend a counter rally in Leipzig

The counter demonstrators lit torches and shouted slogans as supporters of the xenophobic far-right movement PEGIDA gathered to mark the first year of the local chapter LEGIDA, as public anger runs high over the Cologne assaults.

Participants hold candles and posters reading "Lepizig shows courage" during a protest against LEGIDA, the Leipzig arm of the anti-Islam movement Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA), in Leipzig, Germany
