A demonstration by German right-wing radicals yesterday resulted in clashes with police in the center of Cologne. Law enforcement suppressed the rioting using pepper spray, truncheons and water cannon.

The demonstrators responded with firecrackers, Molotov cocktails and rocks. The attack on the police was preceded by a demonstration against Islamic extremism convened by German neo-Nazi organizations and football hooligan groups.

About 2 000 radicals joined the action. Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports that rioting occurred in several other German towns at the same time.

In Cologne approximately 500 people gathered for a counter-demonstration organized by left-wing groups. Police kept the two sides apart.
