STOCKHOLM: Swedish police say around 28 people have been detained after a group of neo-Nazis attacked an anti-Nazism demonstration in a Stockholm suburb by hurling bottles, torches and firecrackers.

Police spokesman Sven-Erik Olsson says two people were hospitalized and a policeman was injured in the back after being hit by a heavy object.

Olsson said around 200 people participated in the planned, peaceful demonstration in the suburb of Karrtorp Sunday when they were attacked by a smaller group of about 40. Those detained are suspected of rioting and various assault charges.

The demonstration was organized by a local citizen group as a protest against increased neo-Nazi campaigning in the area. A neo-Nazi group called the Swedish Resistance Movement claimed responsibility for the attack on its website.
