Thousands block neo-Nazi march in Berlin

BERLIN - Thousands of Berliners have blocked a group of neo-Nazis from staging a march through the German capital on Saturday.


Police say some 2,000 people stood in the way of the planned route of a demonstration organized by the far-right National Democratic Party.


The party, known by its acronym NPD, had planned to march through Berlin's Kreuzberg district, which has a large immigrant population. Germany's security services say the party has a racist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic agenda. (AP)
