Violence has erupted in central Sydney as hundreds of Muslims protest against a controversial film about the Prophet Mohammed.
The wave of protests spread to Sydney’s CBD this afternoon, beginning outside the United States Consulate and spreading through the city’s streets to Hyde Park.
The ABC understands the protest was sparked by a mass text message saying: “We must defend the honour of our prophet, we must act now.”
NSW Police Superintendent Mark Walton said the demonstration was unorganised and some protesters “came forearmed to cause damage”.
Really, muslim community of Sydney?
