vienna - Marching children in military uniforms in a mosque caused a stir in Austria. The children marched behind Turkish flags in one of the largest mosques in Vienna. The authorities start an investigation after images of that procession appeared on the internet.

The prayer house is governed by the Turkish cultural association ATIB, which has direct links with the Turkish religious government organization Diyanet. With the marching, the battle of Gallipoli was depicted that the Turks won in the First World War.

The city of Vienna has instructed the Youth and Family Department to investigate whether there have been 'dangerous activities for young people' according to Austrian media Tuesday.
