More than twenty men were arrested today after fighting broke out at a right-wing protest in the UK. A planned demonstration against Islamic fundamentalism by The English Defence League in Birmingham city centre resulted in angry clashes with anti-fascist campaigners as shoppers looked on. Gangs of men and youths hurled bottles at one another and pelted riot police with bricks as trouble erupted in the New Street area of the city, close to the main train station. The disorder, which involved around 250 people, spilled onto the adjoining Bennetts Hill - a street lined with a number of pubs popular with shoppers.
