Serbian police detained 26 neo-Nazis trying to go ahead with a banned protest on Sunday after they clashed with anti-fascists holding a counter demonstration. Among the detained was Goran Davdovic, the leader of a neo-Nazi group, after he and his supporters hurled stones at a group of anti-fascists in Novi Sad, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Belgrade, police said. Among the detained were 15 Serbs and 11 Slovaks who arrived in Novi Sad to join the planned neo-Nazi rally, police said, adding that they were in possession of knives, Nazi swastikas, fascist flags and propaganda material. Police also said that eight Bulgarians were arrested earlier on Sunday in Belgrade as they planned to travel to Novi Sad. The police, apparently acting on protests by Jewish and other groups, had banned the march planned by Davidovic's Nacionalni Stroj, or National Guard, which was called for Sunday. They had planned the rally as a protest against the southern province of Kosovo's demands for independence from Serbia.
