BELGRADE, Serbia — Several thousand supporters of the far-right protested Saturday in downtown Belgrade against a planned gay pride march, as fears mounted about possible violence during the event Sunday.
The protest was organized by a conservative group advocating traditional Serb family values and religion. Some of the protesters shouted "death to homosexuals" and gave fascist salutes.
"Cancel the gay pride march," said Vladan Glisic, the leader of the Dveri group. "The authorities should protect Serbian family values, and not the gays."
