AT least 30 neo-Nazi thugs were arrested as they clashed with police in Sweden’s second city today.
Black-clad fascists carrying riot shields and wielding flags marched through Gothenburg.
The far-right demonstrators were with Nordic Resistance Movement, a warped ultra-nationalist group.
They chose to rally during Yom Kippur, the Jewish holy celebration which ends tonight.
Around 600 gathered to take to the streets under the NMR flag during the legal demonstration.
At least one cop was injured as dozens rammed into police barricades separating the fascists from hundreds of vocal counter-demonstrators.
They were forcefully blocked from marching near a synagogue in the city after a court ruling banned them from the area.

Opposition protesters launched gas canisters and fireworks while the NMR supporters, dressed in matching black uniforms, smashed into riot police with plastic shields.
Swedish authorities initially said that at least 20 people had been apprehended, and that one police officer had been slightly injured.
A police spokesman later told state broadcaster SVT that an additional 10 people had been arrested.
The police anticipated violence and had called in reinforcements from all police districts in Sweden and added 350 temporary jail beds in a police garage.
‘As a democracy, we should do much more to oppose Nazism and extremism,’ Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told reporters Friday at an EU summit in Tallinn.
