From ABC:

Swedish riot police briefly clashed with counterdemonstrators at a neo-Nazi rally in Stockholm on Saturday, two weeks before a parliamentary election.

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.

“We have had violent riots with people throwing objects at police,” police spokesman Lars Bystrom said.

He said one person was arrested for “preparation for aggravated assault,” while another was arrested for trespassing after climbing onto the roof of the Royal Opera, outside which the neo-Nazis started and ended their march.

Fifteen people were apprehended for violating a ban on wearing masks at political demonstrations.

This comes after the last similar clash where protesters were trampled by horses.
