Here's a story for our time and it's from my neck of the woods. Demonstrators against the Iraqi election were chased off by people who weren't too impressed with their demonstration. The demonstrators were from an Islamic group; the ones who got upset with them were... Iraqis:
Iraqis have clashed with demonstrators against the election outside a polling station in Manchester.Who knows, maybe it could prefigure something wider.
About 200 demonstrators were chased by another group who burned their flags, while other Iraqis clashed with police.
The demonstrators were from Hizb-ut-Tahrir - an Islamic group which is against the elections in Iraq.
David Kahrmann, from the Iraq Election Team, said the protesters "were not even Iraqis".
"The Iraqi community here were saying, 'Why are these people who are not even from Iraq protesting against these elections?'," he said.
Dr Abdul Wahid, of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, said his demonstrators had begun walking away from the scene after election organisers said they were worried their presence could prove trouble.
He said: "The local Iraqis came out and got very agitated. We walked away, but a small group started chasing us."
Thousands of Iraqi expatriates from across the North and Midlands have come to Manchester since Friday to vote in the elections.
