Reuters) – The city of Antwerp has banned a demonstration by the Belgian branch of the German anti-Muslim movement PEGIDA because of security fears, the mayor said.
The demonstration was scheduled for Monday and would have been the first of its kind in Belgium. PEGIDA has attracted tens of thousands to its regular rallies in Germany with its anti-immigrant slogans.
Antwerp’s mayor, who also banned a rival demonstration set for the same date, said the security threat was too great following police raids which foiled an Islamist attack in Belgium last week.

(Reuters) – France announced new measures on Thursday aimed at helping schools combat radical Islam, racism and anti-Semitism in reaction to deadly Islamist attacks two weeks ago.
The moves, including more teacher training and civic and ethics education in the country’s secular curriculum, come after dozens of schools complained of pupils refusing to join a Jan. 8 nationwide minute of silence for the victims.
French symbols such as the flag and national anthem will be explicitly celebrated and one day, Dec. 9, set aside as a “Day of Secularism”. Poor pupils will receive more grants and efforts will be made to make school intakes more socially diverse.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Argentine President Cristina Fernandez said Thursday she’s “convinced” prosecutor Alberto Nisman did not commit suicide as more questions arose in the death of the man who had accused the president of a cover-up in the nation’s worst terrorist attack.
In a letter published by the state news agency Telam, Fernandez said all the questions about Nisman’s death “have been converted into certainty. The suicide (I’m convinced) was not a suicide.”
