Around thirty neo-Nazi activists of the Forza Nuova extreme right party have staged an unauthorised demonstration in Macerata, after a right-wing extremist shot and wounded six African immigrants in the small Italian city on Saturday.

Police say the suspect claims to have been acting out of revenge after a Nigerian immigrant was accused of dismembering an 18-year-old teen whose remains were found four days earlier.

The extremists were quickly pushed out of the central square by the police, while counter demonstrators chanted "we are all anti-fascists".
