Dozens of Neo-Nazis attacked a group of anti-racism protesters in Stockholm, Sweden, on Sunday.

At least 40 extremists threw stones and fireworks at a group of 200 people holding a legal demonstration in opposition to growing neo-Nazi sentiment in the area, Stockholm police spokesman Sven-Erik Olsson said, CNN reported.

Two people were admitted to the hospital and a policeman was injured in the back after being hit by a heavy object, News Corp Australia reported.

Police arrested 28 people total.
