Jews and Muslims protest at Germany circumcision ruling
9 September 2012 Last updated at 19:06 BST
Jewish and Muslim organisations have staged a joint protest in Berlin over a regional court's ruling that the circumcision of young boys constituted bodily harm.
The protest was prompted by the news that a rabbi in Bavaria was being investigated over the practice.
The ruling on circumcision was handed down by a court in Cologne in June.
However, the German government has since announced it will legislate to explicitly legalise the practice.
