Incredible Scenes As Millions Of People Gather To Protest Against Charlie Hebdo In Chechnya

Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in the Russian region of Chechnya, amid growing anger over the publication’s depiction of the Prophet Mohammed.

‘More than 800,000 people took part in the event in the centre of Grozny,’ the Russian interior ministry said.
They marched through the streets of downtown Grozny, the capital of the predominantly Muslim region, releasing balloons and carrying posters that read ‘Hands off our beloved prophet’ and ‘Europe has only united us’.

On Friday, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on his official Instagram account that those who defended Charlie Hebdo were his ‘personal enemies’, and vowed that at least 1 million people would join the government-sponsored protest in Grozny.
