DEN BOSCH - Twenty-six left-wing activists have been arrested in the southern Dutch city of Den Bosch, after they tried to disrupt a protest march by the extreme right-wing Nederlands Volks Unie (NVU).

On Friday a judge ruled that the NVU demonstration could go ahead, but the left-wing activists did not have permission to hold an anti-right-wing protest.

Fifty NVU demonstrators marched through the city while hundreds of left-wing activists made noise to disrupt the march.

Police tried to keep the two groups away from each other. The Mayor of Den Bosch Tom Rombouts had given the police special powers to prevent public disturbance.
