Some 400 leftists try to attack anti-Islam demonstration in Stockholm with bottles, fireworks; 10 arrested-
STOCKHOLM—Swedish activists clashed with police amid a hail of bottles and fireworks in downtown Stockholm on Saturday as they tried to break through a police line and attack an anti-Islam demonstration.
Swedish police say violence has erupted during an anti-Islam demonstration in downtown Stockholm when authorities tried to keep it separate from a rival protest by leftist activists.
Police spokesman Kjell Lendgren says the leftists gathered to heckle the anti-Islam demonstrators, then began throwing bottles and other objects at police.
Lendgren says police are working to quell the unrest and that arrests will be made.
Several nationalist groups, including foreign ones such as the English Defence League, gathered Saturday to protest what they call the spread of Islam in Europe.
