Neo-Nazis and Counter Protesters Clash
There were disturbances in central Stockholm Wednesday night, in connection with demonstrations on the anniversary of the death of the 18th century Swedish King Charles the 12th.
The warrior king, who invaded Russia a century before Napoleon, has in recent years been adopted as a hero of Swedish neo-Nazis.
Several extreme right wing group had received permission to demonstrate in central Stockholm. Around 100 of the neo-Nazis clashed with about twice that number of leftist counter-demonstrators.
