Thousands turned out Saturday to protest a march by an estimated 5,000 supporters of Germany's far right on the 64th anniversary of the deadly Allied World War II bombing of Dresden. Organizers said some 7,500 people gathered in the eastern city to protest the far-right march, which police said involved about 5,000 people. Three successive waves of British and U.S. bombers on Feb. 13-14, 1945 set off firestorms and destroyed the centuries-old city center. The total number of people killed has long been uncertain. Last year, a panel commissioned by state officials found that the firebombing killed no more than 25,000 people - far fewer than scholars' previous estimates that ran as high as 135,000.
