MADRID (AFP) - An anti-Islamic movement that is growing in Germany has opened a branch in Spain following last weeks attacks in France, the group said Wednesday.

The Spanish wing of Pegida was launched on Twitter on Jan 8, the day after an attack by Islamist gunmen on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris that left 12 people dead including some of the country's best-loved cartoonists.
