Protesters try to block Neo-Nazi rally in Phoenix

Police say two people were arrested for throwing rocks at officers who tried to keep protesters from blocking a neo-Nazi march to the federal courthouse in Phoenix.

Police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson says officers used tear gas to move the protesters off the street on Saturday. No serious injuries were reported, but Thompson said several officers and marchers received minor injuries from the rocks.

After the group of people opposed to the neo-Nazi march were moved off the street, the group continued on to the courthouse.

Members of the National Socialist Movement have marched in Phoenix against illegal immigration regularly in recent years.
