A group of 40 neo-Nazis threw stones, bottles and fireworks at a group of about 200 holding a legal demonstration Sunday against racism and the build up of neo-Nazi sentiment near Stockholm, Sweden, CNN reported.

Stockholm police spokesman Sven-Erik Olsson said the incident led to 28 arrests; the suspects could face a maximum charge of attempted murder, although Olsson said they'll more likely be charged with assault and violence against a police officer, CNN reported.
Two demonstrators and two police officers were injured and hospitalized, he said, adding that the protest location was chosen because neo-Nazi graffiti recently was found on buildings there, CNN said.
