While they were performing their praying, racist party sympathizers began to throw stones at the Muslims. Two Muslims were injured by the stones. Two attackers from the Ataka Party were taken into custody by the Bulgarian police.
A group of racists gathered and started protesting the sounds of the sermons and chanted anti-Turkish and Islamist slogans, as "Turkish get out from here", "This is Bulgaria".
