Prague City Hall said Thursday it had banned a march planned for next month by a right-wing extremist group through the Czech capital's Jewish quarter.
The planned march, which was condemned by Jewish leaders in Prague, was banned because it would lead to "inciting hatred and intolerance of citizens because of their nationality, origin and religious faith," City Hall said in a statement.
The march was scheduled to take place on Nov. 10, 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.
The march was organized by the Young National Democrats, which is linked to the National Resistance, a neo-Nazi group. Organizers said it was meant to protest the deployment of Czech troops in Iraq.
