A record 17 thousand 500 people have turned out for the latest "anti-Islamisation" rally in the German city of Dresden.

Demonstrators sang Christmas carols and listened to speeches about immigrants and asylum seekers.

Weekly rallies by a group called Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West, or Pegida, began in October.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and other senior politicians have spoken out against the Pegida rallies.
