The head of German "anti-Islamisation" movement Pegida, Lutz Bachmann, has resigned after a photo of him apparently posing as Hitler emerged.
Mr Bachmann stepped down just as tens of thousands of people were expected to rally in the eastern city of Leipzig for the latest Pegida rally.
Prosecutors opened an investigation after the photo was published on the front pages of German newspapers.
A Pegida spokeswoman sought to play down the Facebook photo as a "joke".
But the German government condemned the photo. Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel told Bild: "Anyone in politics who poses as Hitler is either a total idiot or a Nazi. Reasonable people do not follow idiots, and decent people don't follow Nazis."

He received death threats recently and stopped a monthly "Islamization protest" which really is just a Rally equivalent to Hitler's.
