Glenn Beck: 'America today begins to turn back to God'

Tens of thousands of people have attended a controversial rally in Washington DC organised by conservative talk show host Glenn Beck.

Civil rights leaders criticised Mr Beck for holding the rally at the Lincoln Memorial, the place where Martin Luther King Jr made his "I Have a Dream" speech 47 years ago to the day.

Mr Beck, a presenter for Fox News, insisted the timing was a coincidence.

Addressing the crowd, Mr Beck said the US had "wandered in darkness" for too long and the country was now turning "back to God."
