Around 30 students in the Indonesian city of Medan staged a demonstration against Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ anti-Koran film on Wednesday.

According to the Volkskrant, it is the first violent protest against Fitna since its release last week. Police fired into the air as the students stormed the Dutch embassy and burnt the Dutch flag. Some 23 protestors were arrested, the paper says.
