On 15 December, Swedish Police arrested 28 people after a group of right-wing extremists assaulted demonstrators protesting against neo-Nazism in a suburb of the capital, Stockholm. The right-wing radicals attacked the protesters with bottles, firecrackers and torches, the Associated Press reported on 16 December. 

Police spokesperson Sven-Erik Olsson announced two people were hospitalized as a result of the assault. A police officer also sustained a back injury after being struck with a heavy object.  

Olsson said about 200 people participated in the peaceful, planned demonstration on the suburb of Karrtop when they were attacked by about 40 right-wing extremists. Those detained will evidently be charged with assault and rioting. 

The demonstration was organized by a local civic group to protest the increased activity of neo-Nazis in the area. Right-wing extremists from the Swedish Resistance Movement claimed responsibility for the incident online.
