BERLIN — German police detained more than 100 left-wing activists participating in a counterprotest to a far-right rally in the western city of Dortmund on Saturday after clashes broke out. At least one police officer has been injured.

Police spokesman Kim Freigang said almost 500 right wing extremists gathered in the city. Thousands of left-wing activists came out to challenge them and some became involved in clashes with police who temporarily detained 111 of them.

Far-right groups called the protest rally to commemorate the start of World War ll in September 1939, when German troops invaded neighboring Poland.
