Excerpt:

Following the vandalism of Muslim graves at a Lausanne cemetery, more than 500 people joined a demonstration in the city on Wednesday in support of Muslim people.

Organized by left-wing parties and other associations and bringing together people of all faiths, the demonstration paraded through the town centre, with participants carrying banners saying 'Stop Islamophobia'.

Flowers and plants on the graves were removed, grave markers pulled out and anti-Muslim graffiti sprayed on the ground.
