A person from the group Stop Islamisation of Norway (SIAN) was attacked during a demonstration in Moss, this Saturday.

Lars Thorsen, from the SIAN organisation, threw a ‘Sharia document’ on the ground, which led to an attack from two guys, according to NRK news. One of the men was stopped by the police before any damage could be done, while the other managed to attack Lars Thorsen. Both men were taken by the police, while the demonstration continued.

“There was not enough space around me, so I had to put away my documents somewhere”, says Lars Thorsen who does not understand how this could be perceived as throwing away the documents. NRK tried to get a comment from the men who attacked, but they did not cooperate.

Eight to ten people appeared to join the SIAN demonstration, while around 180 people who attended showed their resistance by standing with their back towards to demonstration.
