Two masked men who climbed onto the roof of an Islamic school in Amsterdam have been arrested.

The pair claimed to be protesting against the opening of the secondary school in the Nieuw-West district in the name of a group calling itself Het Identitair Verzet ("Native Resistance"). They chanted anti-Muslim slogans and unfurled a banner with the slogan: 'If you sow Islam you will reap sharia.'
