Armed protesters at Dallas mosque outnumbered by counter-protesters

A tense, armed, anti-Muslim protest concluded Saturday with no reports of violence.

Police officers spread out across Dallas streets, sanding watch over a Nation of Islam mosque on Martin Luther King Boulevard. Members of the New Black Panther Party and the Bureau of American Islamic Relations rallied some members of the community surrounding the mosque to join the counter protest.

Dallas Police were notified in advance of the demonstration and deployed "significant resources" in the area to provide for the safety of everyone involved, as well as bystanders and members of the community.
