Czech police break up neo-Nazis' May Day rally by force
May 1, 2007, 13:59 GMT
Prague - With teargas and bats Czech police in the Moravian
city of Brno on Tuesday broke up one of the biggest neo-Nazi rallies
in the country so far, Czech news agency CTK reported.
Some 600 people had gathered for what was an authorized May Day
event. But Brno authorities banned the gathering after
unconstitutional symbols had been displayed, reports said.
When right-wing radicals began to throw stones and bottles, police
broke up the crowd by force.
Meanwhile in Prague, a number of people were arrested during
brawls between members of right and left-wing groups on the fringes
of a May Day rally, reports said.
