Muslims in Rome protest at the Colosseum

After police started shutting down unregulated mosques in Rome, the muslim community decided to protest by taking the Friday prayer to the streets. While they began by praying the Al-Jumma in the local park of their neighborhood, on October 21 they showed up in hundreds at the Colosseum, performing the prayer at its feet. The muslims are requesting the reopening of their places of worship and for local officials to help them build regulated mosques in the capital.
