STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Swedish riot police have clashed with thousands of people protesting against a neo-Nazi political party's election rally in Stockholm about two weeks before a parliamentary vote.

Canine units and mounted police also were used Saturday to keep the large crowd from approaching about 100 members of the far-right Party of the Swedes who marched along Stockholm's waterfront. Protesters hurled fireworks, bottles and fences at police.

Police spokesman Lars Bystrom said at least two people were arrested -- one suspected of "preparation for aggravated assault," but declined to elaborate.

It wasn't immediately clear if anyone had been injured.
