DRESDEN - Hundreds of people took part in a protest rally against a gathering of the extreme right-wing NPD party in the German city of Dresden on Saturday.

The demonstrators carried banners and chanted slogans against the estimated 3,000 NPD supporters who gathered for a "press festival" organized by the NPD publication, German Voice.

Around 1,000 police, backed by water cannon, were on duty to keep the rival groups apart.

No major trouble was reported by early evening, but police booked seven rightists for displaying insignia of banned organizations.

Three vehicles belonging to NPD supporters were damaged, presumably by left-wingers, police said.
