1,000 join Muslim 'ring of peace' outside Oslo synagogue

More than 1,000 people have formed a "ring of peace" outside Oslo's main synagogue at the initiative of a group of young Muslims.



Copenhagen: More than 1,000 people have formed a "ring of peace" outside Oslo's main synagogue at the initiative of a group of young Muslims.

The event in the Norwegian capital follows a series of attacks against Jews in Europe, including the killing of a Jewish security guard and a Danish film maker by a Muslim gunman in neighbouring Denmark last week.

One of the eight independent organisers, Hajrah Arshad said the gathering today shows "that Islam is about love and unity."

Norway's Chief Rabbi Michael Melchior sang the traditional Jewish end of Sabbath song outside the synagogue before the large crowd holding hands.

Co-organiser Hassan Raja said it was the first time he heard the song.
