STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A group of around 30 skinheads attacked marchers in a gay pride parade in Stockholm with stones and bottles on Saturday, police
and a Reuters witness said.
A young man on the annual march promoting gay, lesbian and transsexual rights was injured in the head and taken to hospital. A police spokesman said
his life was not in danger.
The assault took place just after the parade of 4,000 to 5,000 people had passed the Royal Palace in central Stockholm, unveiling a huge rainbow flag.
"A group of around 30 people jumped from behind a street corner and started beating the marchers and throwing bottles at them," said a Reuters
cameraman at the scene.
