The event, Islam Salam: Longing for Peace is due to be held at the Zurich World Trade Centre and is said to be a reaction against the violence of Islamic State.

But some of the planned speakers are said to be radical according to some media reports. The Federal Intelligence Service and the Federal Police Office are examining the request.

But organisers say the event is designed to promote peace and includes poetry and music.
