The tour group was organized by Muslim Youth of Austria (MJÖ), the Youth group of the Islamic Faith Community of Austria (Islamische Glaubensgemeinschaft in Österreich, IGGIÖ).
MJÖ are members of the Austrian Federal Youth Representative Council, and are subsidized by the Ministry for Health, Family and Youth. Like (almost?) all Muslim youth groups in Europe they are also members of the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organizations (FEMYSO), the youth division of the Muslim Brotherhood group, the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE)
Two men arrested for breaking a ban on Muslim prayers at a Spanish cathedral which was once a mosque, will be prosecuted, a report said on Saturday.
The Europa Press agency, quoting sources in the Andalusia High Court, said the two Austrians had been freed on Friday but their passports had been confiscated.
Church authorities claimed the incident was premeditated, while the Austrian Muslim youth group which organised the visit said it was spontaneous.
