Sydney Muslims Subdued After Riot

On a spring day a stream of men exits Sydney's Lakemba Mosque after prayers. A few offer their views on the violent protests that shocked Saturday shoppers in the city centre a fortnight ago.

"Hotheads", says one worshipper, referring to the young men who turned a demonstration against an anti-Islamic video into a riot.

Eleven arrests were made, 23 people, including six police officers, were injured.
