A march in Reykjavik to support the marches across America against gun violence
Around 100 people joined a march in downtown Reykjavik to show solidarity with the marches across the US against gun violence folowing the tragic attack in a Florida school in February when 17 people lost their lives.
The march was organised by Americans living in Reykjavik and was also joined by many Icelandic college students. The peaceful march was at one point disrupted by a man who made his way into the gathered crowd and pulled a knife on the demonstrators.
" Luckily 2 demonstrators took swift action and subdued the attacker and the police apprehended him without incident," said Paula Gould, organiser of the march.
