German police banned public open-air gatherings in the eastern city of Dresden Monday, citing a terrorist threat against a planned rally by the anti-Islamic PEGIDA movement.
Dresden police had received information from federal and state counterparts indicating a "concrete threat" against the "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident" group.
There had been calls for would-be "assassins to mingle among the protesters... and to murder an individual member of the organising team of the PEGIDA demonstrations", police said in a notice on the 24-hour ban.
