Baku police break up anti-Israeli Muslim protests



Baku, August 26, Interfax - Police officers have broken up
unauthorized protests staged by Azeri Muslims outside the Israeli
Embassy and the Bibi Heybat Mosque in Baku.

The demonstrators were chanting "Down With Israel!", "Freedom to
Prisoners!", "Freedom to Karabakh!", "Freedom to Al-Quds!", and "Death
to America!"

Some of them were detained by police.

The protests were timed to coincide with Al-Quds (the Arabic name for
Jerusalem) Day, which is celebrated on the last Friday of Ramadan at
the initiative of Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Khamenei.
