Swedish police say 35 people have been arrested as neo-Nazis and anti-fascists clashed during a march by the extreme right-wing Nordic Resistance Movement.

More than 30 people have been arrested as both neo-Nazis and anti-fascists clashed with police during a march by the extreme right-wing Nordic Resistance Movement in the Swedish city of Gothenburg.

The NMR gathered hundreds of people for the march on Saturday, many armed with shields and helmets, while many thousands of counter-protesters also hit the streets of Gothenburg.

Police had prepared for violence to break out and had called in reinforcements from all police districts in Sweden and added 350 temporary jail beds in a police garage.
