Neo-Nazis, anti-fas clash in Dresden on date of Allied bombardment

Neo-Nazis and anti-fascist counter-demonstrators clashed with riot police and each other in Dresden Feb. 14 as the Hitler-nostalgist National Democratic Party used the 64th anniversary of the 1945 Allied bombardment of the German city to hold a 6,000-strong "mourning march." Counter-demonstrations, led in part by the city's unions, drew almost 10,000. Two police cars were over turned and several arrests were made in the street-fighting. For the last ten years, groups linked to NDP have marked the day with marches, but this year's was their largest yet. (EuroNews, Bloomberg, Feb. 14)
