Over 400 police and riot squad personnel were called in to prevent clashes over the construction of a mosque in Bendigo, rural Australia.

The right-wing United Patriots Front reportedly bussed in supporters from all over the state to take part in the protest. It was countered by the pro-multicultural Rally for Diversity.

More than 600 people are thought to have participated in the marches.
