Stockholm protests against neo-Nazis

Associated Press Published:

STOCKHOLM -- Police said four police officers and three civilians were slightly injured in the violence that erupted on the sidelines of a march by about 150 members of the far-right Party of the Swedes.

Thousands of people gathered in downtown Stockholm to protest peacefully against the march, but a few dozen masked activists attacked police with firecrackers, bottles, eggs and panels from a security fence.

Police had sealed off large parts of central Stockholm for the march by the Party of the Swedes, which wants to stop immigration and reserve Swedish citizenship for people with "Western genetic and cultural heritage."
