A neo-Nazi rally in Sweden has ended in arrest after clashes with anti-fascists


A neo-Nazi rally in Sweden has ended with dozens of arrests after anti-fascists clashed with members of the Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR).

Hundreds of members of the NMR had planned to march through the city of Gothenberg but trouble broke out between the police and the far-right group when they tried to deviate from the agreed route.

The leader of the NMR, Simon Lindberg, was among those arrested. Some anti-fascists were also detained.

The NMR describes itself as a “national socialist” group and is not banned. It aims to stop mass migration and fight what it calls a “global Zionist elite”.

Police were deployed from across Sweden to help manage the rally.
