Five people including three police officers were injured in clashes between far-right and far-left extremists in Prague on Tuesday. One man was arrested after attacking the police, a spokesman for the force said. The conflict occurred when marches staged by both groups to commemorate the International Workers’ Day passed each other under heavy police supervision; however, the activists threw bottles, stones and other objects at each other. One of the injured officers was taken hospital; the other people only suffered light injuries.
