Southampton man arrested after firework thrown at police during rally
8:47am Sunday 18th August 2013 in News
The rally was held to protest against the opening of the Madani Academy Muslim school in Portsmouth.
Police said a 29-year-old man, from Southampton, had been arrested following the attack, which had left a female officer "shaken".
But officers added the organised protest had been "peaceful".
A 23-year-old man, from Portsmouth, was also arrested before the march, on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.
The independent faith school for 5-16 year olds is expected to open in the city in September.
