Neo-Nazis trying to march through the Jewish quarter of Prague on Saturday clashed with self-proclaimed anti-fascists, and at least 80 people were arrested in outbreaks of violence around the capital.
Police also seized weapons including a gas gun, axes and sticks at scattered sites as the extremists tried to reach the Jewish quarter, police spokesman Ladislav Bernasek said.
At least six people, including one policeman, suffered head injuries, said Prague rescue service spokeswoman Jirina Ernestova.
The march had been scheduled to take place just a day after the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the 1938 night of terror when the Nazis attacked synagogues and Jewish homes and businesses throughout Germany and parts of Austria.
