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.

It makes me wonder why some have to object to a group in this way. Even though I disagree with the gay lifestyle in a general sense, I don't understand bloodletting to express ones views.

Skinheads hate everyone except skinheads don't they??

I think it is completely stupid to use violence against someone you dont like. I support the LGBT community in every way i can and to persecute someone that is different from you is just wrong. and why should anybody care if someone is gay or not?
