Norway Muslims take to capital's streets to protest

Demonstration organizer said that the march was arranged to show that Ubaydullah Hussain’s "hate speech" and support of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) - a militant group that has seized parts of Syria and Iraq - was not symbolic of the country’s Muslims.

All around, demonstrators stood waving banners emblazoned with such messages as “No to ISIS” and “Not in Islam's Name.”

Last weekend, 29-year-old Oslo-born Ubaydullah Hussain attempted to defend actions by self-styled 'Islamic State' militants in Iraq and Syria in a 43-minute interview with a Norwegian TV station.

He described decapitation as a "merciful" way of executing war criminals, and called for Muslims to follow Sharia law.
