Ten people were arrested as a Swedish neo-Nazi group marched through central Stockholm today while counterdemonstrators threw snowballs and fireworks at them.
Police spokesman Lars Bystrom said those detained were taken when counter-demonstrators clashed with officers in the capital as they tried to reach the rally by the Nordic Resistance Movement.
A few hundred people, some with the movement's green and white flags, walked in freezing weather. Up to six times as many people staged a counter-demonstration nearby and some eventually broke out to try to block the right wing group from crossing a bridge on their route.
Large numbers of police, including mounted officers, kept the two sides apart. There were no reports of injuries. (more...)
