Berlin protesters, police clash near anti-migrant march
Police clashed Saturday with activists who took to the streets of Berlin to shout down thousands of anti-migrant demonstrators protesting against Chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door refugee policy.
More than 40 people were arrested and one officer was lightly wounded, police said.
The scuffles erupted after police broke up a sit-in by counter-demonstrators, some of whom tried to break through the barriers separating them from the anti-migrant march. Officers also intervened to stop angry exchanges between rival demonstrators.
