Some 100 Far-Right Czechs Detained at Anti-Roma Demos
Around 100 far-right activists were detained Saturday in eight Czech cities as they demonstrated against Roma, officials said.
The largest march in northeastern Ostrava drew between 600 and 800 people.
Violent clashes broke out between stone-throwing protesters and police, who used teargas to prevent them from entering a district mainly inhabited by Roma.
Around 60 of the demonstrators were taken in for questioning, a police spokeswoman told AFP.
Smaller marches were held in seven other cities, while human rights activists staged counter-demonstrations in Prague and several other cities.
