German police say a few thousand people took part in traditional Easter marches protesting against nuclear weapons and the Afghan war.

Police in Frankfurt said 1,500 peace activists came out for Monday's rally. In Berlin, police said around 1,000 protesters were on the streets. Stuttgart police reported about 750 participants over the weekend.

Similar rallies of varying size were held in dozens of cities across the country. Organizers say tens of thousands participated.

Protesters asked for a withdrawal from Afghanistan and for an abolishment of nuclear weapons.

One banner in Munich reads ""Take the troops out of Afghanistan immediately."

Three German soldiers were killed in Afghanistan on Friday while six Afghan troops were accidentally shot by the Germans.
