Rasmus Paludan returned to Sweden today for another Koran-burning tour. When he set up his gig in a park in Borås, angry devotees of Mahomet attempted to get at him by swimming across the adjacent river — a contingency that police had evidently failed to plan for.
Muslims jumped in river to get at Paludan

When Rasmus Paludan held a public meeting in Borås today, several persons tried to swim across the river to get to where he was.
Rasmus Paludan showed up at the city park in Borås around 2 pm, reports P4 Sweden Radio.
He burned several Korans, and at Sandwallsplats on the other side of the Viskan [river], a large number of upset counter-demonstrators gathered, several hundred of them.
Some of them jumped in the river to swim over to the park where the Danish Koran-burner was located, writes P4 Sweden Radio.
A video of the incident shows how police took several people into custody.
According to Dagens Nyheter, ten people have been taken into custody and have been arrested, suspected of assault after the incident.
One of the men who swam across the river threw a rock at Paludan which instead hit a police officer, according to the newspaper.
Here’s a cell phone video (hat tip Elena) from the Muslim side of the river where natatory-minded culture-enrichers gather to brave the chilly water and swim across to confront the blasphemer. One person, apparently a Muslima, jumps into the river and immediately gets into distress, requiring rescue:
